Description


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.

Euell Gibbons tells how to find marvelous food in every coastal area of North America.This book contains numerous drawings for identification and hundreds of recipes and cooking tips from chowders and clambakes to simple epicurean treats such as boiled periwinkles dipped in melted butter.
