Recommended books on Copper Canyon

There is just a short list of books I recommend people read before going to Copper Canyon…or just as an introduction to this great place:

1. “In the Sierra Madre”, Jeff Biggers – This one is a very careful account of his year in the village of Cusásare. Food, customs, language, history…very rich. <here on Amazon.

2. “Born to Run”, Christopher McDougall – This is not just a great read, a biting critique of running shoes, an intro to some Copper Canyon characters . There is a reason why this book was on the bestseller list. <here on Amazon.

3. Tarahumara: Where Night is the Day of the Moon, Bernard L Fontana. Great book with lots of info and pics ….all about the one tribe who survived the Spanish. <here in Amazon.

4. Mexican Spanish, Lonely Planet, Rafael Carmona. You gotta get this book if you enjoy making a stab at speaking to the locals. Full of all kinds of survival stuff including a big section on food. And it is pocket sized- love it. <here on Amazon.

5. Our book coming soon on Norteño food. The “Blue Corn Express”culinary trip and the chefs associated with it will soon yield the premier book on the delicious hearty foods of the Sierra Madres. <soon on Amazon! Just call your local book publisher and convince them to take on the book.
