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.

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.

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.

I have a friend who is a great cook, and she never shares her recipes.....or at least, when she shares, there is some critical ingredient she fails to include, and the results are never the same. This is my present for her, to stand beside her Julia Childs' cookbooks.

Years ago now, I worked in the offshore oil field, and my deckhand previously worked with a captain who foraged road kill for his crew. He picked it up from the side of LA Hwy 1 between Leesville and Port of Fourchon on his way to the boat. No joke. When the crew complained to the office, which provided grocery allowance enough to not rely on road kill, a quick trip to the boat verified its presence in the freezer. So under those circumstances, the crew needed a cookbook such as this one.

I cast no aspersions upon road kill per se, but it isn't for those with weak stomachs. Including myself. Don't take this seriously as a cookbook, but if you have a highly accomplished chef to buy for, this could be an exciting diversion for them. I doubt they ever heard of this cookbook. Published by Ten Speed Press....on the road again. :)

This book is hillarious! A must for anyone who drives the highways and byways in a rural or city area. I thought at first that my husband or father-in-law had written this book. Then I realized that I had not eaten any of these foods,since according to them I am a kill joy and won't let them scrape dead carcasses from the road and bring home. I guess they'll just have to figure out how to use these recipes for freshly killed and field dressed hunted creatures.

Now if I could just get a how to freeze dry your husband's hunted meals................

It's ok..... Not really a cook book. More of a joke book about cooking wild game and Road kill???? Well not really road kill per say... hence the jokes. But does make for some great stories when the folks come by to enjoy a real home cooked meal of wild game Killed by the great hunters who darn near froze to death sitting in a tree stand for two weeks. Men do some strange things to amuse themselves. Even chase balls all day into a little hole in the dirt. So buy the book, and enjoy the laughs that it will start everyone to enjoy!
