My life in the 1970's was right in that area (SW New Hampshire) and I cooked using lots of those principles - whole grains, fresh fruits and veggies, and so forth. Of course it was an extension of local cooking anyway with U-Pick farms, local cheeses, milk and eggs, and seasonal produce then. Now we're headed back to similar types of cooking nearly 40 years later, but with a boost of some added ingredients or exposure to new cuisines. Not such a bad thing.

We didn't have her cookbook, but her ideas definitely influenced my eating in my 20s. I moved to a town with a Co-op, and the first time I went in there, I saw all the bins of bulgur, beans, and other weird food and said to my partner, "There's nothing to EAT in here." Fast forward two years, and we were roaming the aisles of the Safeway because it was late and the Co-op was closed for the evening. I turned to my partner in utter frustration and pronounced, "There's nothing to EAT in here!" Thanks to Hunter, Lappe, and others like them.

That cookbook was a frequently used tome in my 70s era kitchen and stood next to Frances Moore Lappe's 2 Small Planet cookbooks.
