The Civilian Conservation Corps Cookbook


the Civilian Conservation Corps was a voluntary government work relief program that offered nearly 3 million unemployed, unmarried men the job of restoring and conserving America's public lands, forest and parks.  The wages weren't the only draw - the program also threw in three square meals a day served in the camp mess hall.  This book features the recipes that sustained not only the CCC during the Great Depression but also our grandparents and great-grandparents.  Budget friendly, with ingredients that can easily be found - if not in your very own pantry then at your local grocer - these recipes reflect the "make do" attitude of Depression-era home cooks.
