The Wild Life
This is John Lewis-Stempel's account of a year long adventure eating only food shot, caught or foraged from the fields, hedges, and brooks on his forty-acre farm. Nothing from a shop and nothing raised from agriculture. We witness the season-by-season drama as the author survives on Nature's larder, trains Edith, a reluctant gundog, and conjures new recipes. Above all, we see him get closer to Nature.
