Overview
Mr. Heavey takes us back to the joysand occasional pitfallsof the humble edibles around us, and his conclusions ring true. "Wall Street Journal"
Longtime "Field & Stream" contributor Bill Heavey has become the magazine s most popular voice by writing for sportsmen with more enthusiasm than skill. In his first full-length book, Heavey chronicles his attempts to eat wild, seeing how much of his own food he can hunt, fish, grow, and forage.
But Heavey is not your typical hunter-gatherer. Living inside the D.C. Beltway, and a single dad to a twelve-year-old daughter with an aversion to nature food, he s almost completely ignorant of gardening and foraging. Incensed at the squirrels destroying his tomatoes, he is driven to rodent murderby arrow. Along the way, Heavey is guided by a number of unlikely teachers, from the eccentric Paula, who runs an under-the-table bait business, to Michelle, an attractive single mom unselfconsciously devoted to eating locally. To the delight of his readers and the embarrassment of his daughter, he suffers blood loss, humiliation, and learns, as he puts it, that edible is not to be confused with tasty.
