Land Acknowledgement Statement...

the Cook's Bookcase is located in the City of Santa Cruz, CA.

Santa Cruz County is located on the territory of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band (AMLT). Collectively referred to by many as “Ohlone,” the AMLT are the indigenous peoples of the territories ranging from Año Nuevo to the greater Monterey Bay area. Historically comprised of more than 20 politically distinct peoples, the modern tribe represents the surviving descendant families of the indigenous people who survived the Santa Cruz and San Juan Bautista missions. Working the lands known to them as Popeloutchom for millennia, it is the goal of AMLT to restore the Mutsun people and their knowledge to better conserve and protect these lands.

Nice review of my collection!

Nice review of my collection in the recent quarterly of Fellowship of American Bibliophilic Societies, Fall 2023, Vol. XXVIII, Number 2. "American Ingenuity and Innovation: Kitchen Appliance Instruction Manuals" (April-June 2023) demonstrated that consumer manuals comprise a rich archive of American traditions in technical writing, printing, and graphic design."
