Rafe Caradec—gambler, wanderer, soldier of fortune—was as hard a man as the battlefields and waterfronts of Latin America could fashion, but he was as good as his word. As Charles Rodney lay dying in a dank ship’s fo’c’sle, Rafe swore to make sure that Rodney’s Wyoming ranch went to his daughter, Ann. In Painted Rock, Wyoming, Caradec found land for a man to love, miles of rolling grasslands and towering mountains. He also found that one of the most ruthless men in the territory had set his sights on both Rodney’s ranch and his daughter. But Rafe Caradec had given his word, and once he’d looked deep into Ann Rodney’s eyes, nothing short of death would stop him from keeping the promise he’d made.

Of all the Made at Home titles, perhaps this one speaks loudest to the popularity of homegrown foods. The smoked bacon, salamis and heady cheeses we love are prime candidates for handcrafted taste. Curing and Smoking demonstrates how simple it is to use the magic of smoke to create wonderfully aromatic foods with distinctive flavors.
The book follows the curing and smoking processes from beginning to end, from creating a purpose-made pantry to storage. Topics include drying, curing, hot smoking, cold smoking, indoor smoking, drying and wrapping, and vacuum packing. Foods are not limited to meats and cheeses, but include fruits and vegetables, fish, ciders, and seafood. Even eggs can be smoked or cured. Original and delicious recipes offer up such delights as jams and jellies, hot-smoked oysters, and fresh tomato salsa. Curing and Smoking is ideal for adventurous cooks, modern pioneers and all food crafters.

A new series for living the good life!
Father-and-son team Dick and James Strawbridge have long lived the good life on their small acreage, and now they’re sharing their years of knowledge and experience with readers via their Made at Home series of books. This exciting collection draws on the invaluable wisdom they’ve gleaned while producing an abundance of good things to eat and drink: organic fruits and vegetables grown, juiced, fermented, and preserved; pigs smoked for ham, sausages, salamis, and bacon; a mixed flock of birds used for eggs and eating; and bees raised for honey. It's an enviable lifestyle driven by a desire to eat well every day.
And it doesn’t require a lot of space. Made at Home contains numerous adaptations to urban and suburban life. Plants are grown in small lots and pots, chickens are kept in backyard pens, and meat items are smoked in the backyard. It’s proof positive that anyone can live the good life.
