Indenting a large quote with citation format

Here's an example of how to "block and indent" an extended quote. But note the following format: it has completely been indented two (2) tab spaces in its entirety. It's also SINGLE-spaced, not double-spaced, the page number or source goes OUTSIDE the quote, AND there are no quotation marks around it--or a set of parenthesis marks.

This book contains over 150 recipes based on wild plants utilized by Indians in the southwestern United States. Fifty desert plants are described and illustrated with line drawings and listed alphabetically with information on habitat, historical significance, and use in tribal cooking. The book is well-researched and detailed, with much useful ethnobotanical information accompanying the recipes. A bibliography and an index are included. (121)
