5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring book got me out foraging for nettles...shad are next!, April 16, 2010
This review is from: Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager (Hardcover)
This very personal story is both inspirational and informative. Each chapter educates on a different wild food and provides key information needed to head out and find your own food in the wilderness. After reading it, I found a patch of dreaded stinging nettles (the bane of my childhood), suited up, collected and cooked them (see photo). This was an amazing new discovery for me, nettles are delicious and incredibly good for you. As Lang points out, food is always more flavorful when you find it out in the wild! Foods types and collection methods described range from easy, such as dandelions to challenging, including potentially poisonous mushrooms and free diving to spear ling cod.
