This story is about cowboys and chuckwagons during the early days of cattle ranching in Western Canada. The lifestyle, customs, dress and food of the cowboy is an interesting and important part of Canada's heritage. Mouth-watering recipes such as Son-of-a-Gun-in-a-Sack have been thoroughly tested and adapted for 20th century cooks. The Come'n Get It cookbooks are a unique combination of down-home recipes, early western Canadian ranch lore and archival photographs. Material had been gathered from manuscripts, history books, family cookbooks and farm interviews with ranching families, and represent a cross section of Canada's ranching country extending from the Cariboo area of British Columbia, through southern Alberta to Saskatchewan.
