The Alaskan Wild Game Cook Book: Recipes from the Collection of Phyllis D. Fisher. Illustrated by Jane W. Hafling.

Anchorage, Alaska: The author; printed by Color Art Printing Co. Inc., 1961.

Octavo (23 x 16 cm.), 104 pages. Illustrated. Table of contents. FIRST EDITION. A private initiative by a longterm Alaska resident and cognoscente, abetted by a cartoon caricaturist. One hundred thirty recipes emphasizing game and accompaniments associated with it, including: Sweet and Sour Moose, Caribou Meat Loaf, Curry of Reindeer, Savory Roast Sheep, Bear Rump Roast; Cranberry Apple Raisin Relish, Wild Berry Sauce, Peppy Marinade, and (for the sheep) Caper Sauce. Includes also chapters on fish preparation, mushrooms, and breads. The cartoonist Jane Winifred Hafling (b. 1923) contributed a column on daily life in Alaska to the Anchorage Times for many years. The identity of the compiler and presumed author of the recipes cannot be reliably sketched, at present, beyond what is revealed by the "Collection" provided here. Red comb-binding, its bottom-most tooth broken; illustrated paper covers with brown and red lettering; corners slightly bumped. Very good. [OCLC locates fourteen copies].
