Stalking The Wild Asparagus
By Euell Gibbons
Euell Gibbons was one of the few people in this country to devote a considerable part of his life to the adventure of “living off the land.” He sought out wild plants all over North America and made them into delicious dishes. His book includes recipes for vegetable and casserole dishes, breads, cakes, muffins and twenty different pies. He also shows how to make numerous jellies, jams, teas, and wines, and how to sweeten them with wild honey or homemade maple syrup.
“delightful and as valid today as they were more than two decades ago.”
—Nelson Bryant,The New York Times
“He (Euell Gibbons) was a man who knew the wild in a way that no one else in this time has even marginally approached.”
—John McPhee,The New York Times
