    Carol Brink, Ashley Wolff

    Paperback (North-South Books, Oct. 1, 1996)

Wolff's research brought her to Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts, where she found the 17th-century recipe for spice cake (containing the ingredients mentioned in the poem) that is reprinted at the close of this engaging book"".--Publishers Weekly, starred review.
