If you wanted to find out how to cook any fish located in any area of North America, here is the book. Written by Frances MacIlquaham, copyrighted in 1974. First part of the book shows "Campfire Fish Cookery" where it shows how to even make chowder over the campfire. Then there is a section on "Fish and How to Cook it". My favorite is "Species and Specialites". Within this section there is recipes on how to cook puffer fish, skates and even some common fish such as salmon. The book is 300 pages long and has great recipes not to mention facts on every fish you can imagine. Book cover is a little tore, but still in good shape. Book is in excellent shape.
