Book Description:

The ancient Romans considered cabbage the perfect medicine for ailments ranging from warts to deafness. Natchez Indians ate dog meat in their war feast to gain the doglike loyalty expected of warriors. This volume fills a gap in the literature on the relationship of food to the mythologies and rituals of cultures and peoples around the world.

About the Author:

Tamra Andrews is a librarian and professional writer specializing in astronomical mythology.
