Back cover copy

This foraging and cooking classic was first published in 1964 and has continued to be one of America's most appreciated works on the subject of seafood. As a young man, Euell Gibbons kept his family alive during the Dust-Bowl era by gathering wild foods. In later years he foraged for seafood all over the coastlines of North America and even Hawaii. He drew on his extensive experience and research to write his "Stalking" series, books which have entered the American lexicon and which remain the starting point for serious foragers.

Review quote

""(Gibbons) shows how to identify and render palatable some forms not commonly considered food items in this country, such as periwinkles, chitons, dog whelks, goose barnacles, and wild seaside plants, in addition to, of course, the more common shellfish. Those who share Gibbon's own love for the seashore will be anxious to start nibbling away after reading this."
Vincent Caccese, Library Journal"
