Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

This guy's not kidding! Well, he is kidding, but he's serious, too. Buck Peterson takes a generally disgusting subject and makes it hilariously funny. And edible... With a good sense of humor and a strong stomach, you will find this book entertaining and thought-provoking, but you might want to keep it in another room when you have friends over for dinner.

About the Author

BUCK PETERSON is the author of 10 books on the great outdoors, including the best-selling ORIGINAL ROADKILL COOKBOOK. He roosts in an old-growth tree farm just outside of Seattle, Washington.

We had purchased this book prior for a friend for Christmas. My sons have turned into avid hunters. I thought they would enjoy receiving this for Christmas. It is a humorous book about (of course) Road Kill. This would also be a great book for someone who has just started driving and, like my children, had deer accidents. It gives exact details how to hit them with your vehicle to save you the trouble of loading them. Like it says "No wonder Game Wardens Children are the best fed in the school." Hope you enjoy as much as the people we have given to.

A very cute parody of over-serious recipe books. The
illustrations are the tip-off.

If you live in the country, this is a fun book to have on your cookbook shelf. Or just casually have it laying around the kitchen counter, when the dinner guests arrive.

As an avid hunter and cook I found this book particularly amusing from start to finish. Buck does a great job writing and illustrating and I keep it out when entertaining, with dogeared pages, so that my guests can see the recipes I am using. Makes for some lively conversations.

I pretty much purchased this book for the cute names it gives to its flatened fauna and such since I do "Manifold Cooking" on my 1931 Ford Model A, and this book gave me ideas for names of foods and such.

We sent these to several friends as a gag gift. All of them enjoyed this delightful tongue-in-cheek way to prepare food!

This is a fun novelty book that I got as a gift for a fellow foodie and cookbook collector. I'm entertained by all of the 'road kill' recipes and the little stories.
