Hunt, Gather, Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast ($16) is a guide to doing just that. Written by journalist and former cook Hank Shaw, it mixes in precise instructions on food preparation with anecdotes from his own conversion to a hunter/gatherer lifestyle, and provides some tasty recipes to get you started.
