Product description

In WILD FOODS Ray Mears and Gordon Hillman lead us into the wildest parts of Britain to demonstrate the huge variety of indigenous foods that can be found. One of the most crucial skills to surviving in any wilderness is self-reliance - now, with this book, you can equip yourself with the knowledge to find tasty and sustaining foods in your own back yard and beyond. Practical, enthralling, often surprising, packed with beautiful illustrations, WILD FOODS is an invaluable tool for any keen outdoorsman, and it is a fascinating read anyone with an interest in the little-known side of Britain's natural resources.

Review quote

'WILD FOOD made me want to run to the hills, live on pignuts and never see another human face' Sunday Telegraph Seven magazine There's only one person I'd like to be stuck up Limpopo with, and that's Ray Mears. Not since Roger Phillip's seminal book of the same name has anyone thrown open the fridge door of nature with such enthusiasm, generosity and respect. The Times 'Sensitively illustrated, this book is a mine of information ... this is a beautiful, engaging and informative book that I recommend highly to anybody intested in nature, wild food ro the lives of the last true hunter-gatherers.' Countryfile It's all good fun. Independent on Sunday
