"If Jack Kerouac had hung out with Julia Child instead of Neal
Cassady, this book might have been written fifty years ago. . . .
Steven Rinella brings bohemian flair and flashes of poetic
sensibility to his picaresque tale of a man, a cookbook, and the
culinary open road."--The Wall Street Journal
"If you rue the 'depersonalization of food production, ' or you're tired of chemical ingredients, [Rinella] will make you howl."--Los Angeles Times
"A walk on the wild side of hunting and gathering, sure to repel a few professional food sissies but attract many more with its sheer in-your-face energy and fine storytelling."--Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall "[A] warped, wonderful memoir of cooking and eating . . . [Rinella] recounts these madcap wilderness adventures with delicious verve and charm."--Men's Journal
