Cookbook find: Cowboys and Chuckwagons

I'm always on the lookout for regional / unique / church basement cookbooks. I found this Come 'n Get It - Cowboys and Chuckwagons at the "Share Shack" at the Deka Lake dump … sorry, I mean "land fill".

The image below is the first page of the book. The quote says:

"Bacon in the pan,
Coffee in the pot;
Get up an' get it
Get it while it's hot."

Come 'n Get It - Cowboys and Chuckwagons

The recipes contain a lot of lard, flour, sugar, and beans. Here's the original recipe for Charlie's Doughnuts:

Two tea cups sugar, 3 eggs, 1-1/2 tea cups buttermilk, 2 teaspoons saleratus, 1 teaspoon salt, 6 tablespoons melted lard, flour enough to roll nicely. Boil or fry in lard.

To make things a little easier, I'll let you know that saleratus is baking soda. I never have buttermilk in the house, but apparently putting vinegar in regular milk gets you close.

I'm going to leave the book here for my dad's cabin cookbook collection.
