If you're adventurous and have a palate that likes trying new food items, there are about 15 edible insects listed here, with pictures and information to help you decide if this is something you'd like to try. It even lists the flavors of various insects such as vanilla or bacon.
Although this book is listed for teens and adults, preteen boys would love it. I can just see my 8 year old grandson going exploring for edible bugs and bringing them home for his mother to prepare.
I really enjoyed reading this book, but I don't think I'll ever be a committed bug eater! This book should be on every survivalist and preppers bookshelf.
The author very effectively shares some of the massive benefits of eating bugs and how it can improve our world (crazy sounding concept, I know).
Then he moves on to bug "recipes". A number of them sound relatively appealing (although I think I'd have to close my eyes, at least at the beginning).
I also love the interesting and useful facts provided throughout the book. E.g. Did you know that you can eat a any solid colored grasshopper, but that the multicolored ones are toxic??
If you're at all curious, I'd definitely recommend this book!
I don't think the author is an expert on the subject. This book is basically a very high-quality middle school report on the subject of eating bugs. I can see it being a cute resource for kids, but I don't recommend it for anyone who actually wants to learn about foraging bugs.
The recommended resources in the back are pretty good. It seems like perhaps there's a general shortage of published resources on this subject, though. Try the blog, "Girl Meets Bug," for starter information.
Some of them I recognized from the survival programs.
The photographs in this book are of very high quality.
Fun and educational book.
