To some, a vegan cattle ranch may seem a contradiction in terms -- but then so would a place where desperately ill children discover their true strength by learning to ride horses and rope calves. Welcome to the Imus Ranch, 4,000 acres set in the mesa country of Santa Fe, NM. Children who visit the Ranch work with authentic western ranch hands and gain a firsthand insight into life as a cowboy. The children leave stronger than when they came, with a sense of accomplishment and pride in their new abilities. Here are 125 recipes: from blueberry pancakes, sloppy joes, and red chili enchiladas to chicken-less pot pie, bbq, cookies, and rice pudding, are guaranteed to please the whole family. Color photos. Letters from the children who have visited.

About the Author:

DEIRDRE IMUS, co-founder of the Imus Ranch, is founder of the Deirdre Imus Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology at Hackensack University Medical Center, the first hospital-based program whose mission is to identify, control, and ultimately prevent environmental factors that cause cancer. She lives in Manhattan, Connecticut, and New Mexico.

From Publishers Weekly:

Imus founded the Deirdre Imus Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology, a program that aims to identify, control and ultimately prevent environmental factors that cause adult and, especially, pediatric cancer. She rounds out this collection of basic vegetarian fare with a lengthy essay about life on the Santa Fe, N.Mex. ranch where she and her husband, radio personality Don Imus, practice "healthy living and healthy cooking" and teach self-reliance and horsemanship to kids who have "known too much sickness and too much death." Imus's diet is "organic, whole-food, ovo vegetarian, meaning that we don't eat dairy or animal products, but we do eat eggs," and she explains it with a rundown of the ranch's organic "vegan pantry." The informal recipes focus on basics like Orange Poppy Seed Muffins and Cowboy Potato Chowder, and fast sandwiches like I-Man Chimichangas. Dinner selections feature nostalgic favorites such as Spanish Rice updated with brown rice and olive oil, and Imus cleans up desserts (including Carrot Cake and Jeannie's All Out Brownies) by substituting unbleached flour and unrefined sugar. In addition to healthy lifestyle prescriptives and thank-you notes from some of the camp's young alumni, Imus includes sidebars on topics ranging from non-toxic head lice remedies to green cleaning agents to the dangers of PVC in children's toys. She ends this informative book with a complete nine-day menu, spanning the average duration of Imus Ranch guests.
