The Wild Life by John Lewis-Stempel

How challenging would it be to live entirely on wild food for a whole year?

John Lewis-Stempel’s book proves that living only on food provided by nature is not only possible, but also can be pleasant, albeit hard and tiring.

He lived for a whole year purely on food hunted, shot, caught and foraged
from the fields and copses of his 40-acre, 17th-century Herefordshire farm. The experience brought him closer to Nature (with a capital ‘N’) closer to his history and family, and more importantly to his own self.

Tough, honest, funny, poetic and informative, this is an initiatory and spiritual journey. A life lesson for us all.
