Lester Family Preserves
This cookbook by Bettie Simpkins Lester Lucas' great granddaughter, Karen, contains 350 favorite recipes contributed by four generations of descendants of Bettie and Floyd Lester of Radford, Virginia and their extended families. It also includes a brief history of the Lesters and Simpkins and their lives in the New River Valley of Southwest Virginia.
Cream colored pages and vintage artwork on the sectional pages are in keeping with the vintage theme and the introduction includes a vintage photograph of Bettie and Floyd with the Simpkins family. It includes lots of cooking related quotes, personal recipe notes from contributors, a section of Helpful Cooking Hints and a convenient recipe pocket envelope for adding your own favorite recipes to the book.
