Thomas Pecore Weso will sign Good Seeds

Thomas Pecore Weso will sign Good Seeds: A Menominee Indian Food Memoir (Wisconsin Historical Society, $19.95). Weso takes readers on a cook's journey through Wisconsin's northern woods. He connects each food--beaver, trout, blackberry, wild rice, maple sugar, partridge--with colorful individuals who taught him Indigenous values. Cooks will learn from his authentic recipes. Amateur and professional historians will appreciate firsthand stories about reservation life during the mid-twentieth century, when many elders, fluent in the Algonquian language, practiced the old ways.

Weso uses humor to tell his own story as a boy learning to thrive in a land of icy winters and summer swamps. With his rare perspective as a Native anthropologist and artist, he tells a poignant personal story in this unique book.
