I enjoy foraging as a hobby, fished as child growing up in Alaska, and am thinking about hunting some deer this fall on our property in our overpopulated with deer area. Though I would not use this book as a field guide for identification, I enjoyed the memoir like musings of the author's experiences from childhood and beyond in foraging, fishing and hunting. The included recipes are simple and not overblown, a good starting point for dreaming up ways to used the gathered bounty. I'd recommend this book to people who already forage and like reading about it and for those people new to foraging, or thinking about it, who want a sense of what it is like and what you can do with it practically. Hunt, Gather, Cook is a nice addition to the foraging library but not a field guide. ( )

"An award-winning journalist and blogger's guide to foraging, fishing, hunting--and making the most of the fruits of a day spent gathering food in the field. If there is a frontier beyond organic, local, and seasonal, beyond farmers' markets and sustainably raised meat, it surely includes hunting, fishing, and foraging your own food. A lifelong angler and forager who became a hunter late in life, Hank Shaw has chronicled his passion for hunting and gathering in his widely read blog, Hunter Angler Gardener Cook, which has developed an avid following among outdoor people and foodies alike. Hank is dedicated to finding a place on the table for the myriad overlooked and underutilized wild foods that are there for the taking--if you know how to get them. In Hunt, Gather, Cook, he shares his experiences both in the field and the kitchen, as well as his extensive knowledge of North America's edible flora and fauna. With the fresh, clever prose that brings so many readers to his blog, Hank provides a user-friendly, food-oriented introduction to tracking down everything from sassafras to striped bass to snowshoe hares. He then provides innovative ways to prepare wild foods that go far beyond typical campfire cuisine: homemade root beer, cured wild boar loin, boneless tempura shad, Sardinian hare stew--even pasta made with handmade acorn flour. For anyone ready to take a more active role in determining what they feed themselves and their families, Hunt, Gather, Cook offers an entertaining and delicious introduction to harvesting the bounty of wild foods to be found in every part of the country"--… (more)
