"Fiery Foods From Tombstone" by Mary Traywick
Tombstone of the 1880’s had a reputation for gunfights and boisterous activity. It also boasted a reputation as a gourmet outpost. It’s from this tradition that Mary Traywick, Ben’s wife, has prepared her book, Fiery Foods from Tombstone. The book also contains pictures of Tombstone 1880 restaurants and menus.
Recipes passed verbally from mother to daughter since the time of the conquistadors.
