I've been considering a change in my families lifestyle for a good while now, and have been reading Rohan's blog for about a year, so had a good idea of what it would be like.
This is an amazing book, I've never read what is essentially a cookbook from cover to cover before, but Anderson's knowledge and insight into a way of life is enough to make you question your own habits and lifestyle, while keeping your wallet and belly happy at the same time

I was looking forward to this book very much but it does not live up to its marketing. Quite weak.

HASH(0x9b2deb7c) out of 5 stars It reads like a magazine; pretty good book, but there are better ones to read instead 10 Sept. 2013
By A. Wiederman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I respect the author and what he set out to do. Unfortunately, the final product left me lacking.

The problem with this book boils down to three simple facts:

1) The topic itself (gardening, foraging, hunting/fishing) is too ambitious for just 240 pages. There are much better books already published on each (I'll share those recommendations below) -- but those authors focused on just one of the topics, enabling them to provide more detail.

2) The author is a DIY-er (which I admire -- I'm one too) and most of his recipes reflect this. Sure, some of the recipes are delicious -- but nothing really comes across as new. I had the feeling throughout that I'd seen similar recipes before. And this would have been perfectly fine with me had I learned something new from the advice he sprinkles throughout on his pursuits -- but these tips were elementary.

3) It reads like a magazine. By this I mean that it's full of many photographs (beautiful, no doubt -- the author is an exceptionally talented photographer) that often take up the whole page, accompanied by handwritten recipe introductions followed by a typed font for the actual steps. It has an amateurish feel that isn't all that easy for the eyes and mind to process. At times, it felt like I was reading a lengthy ransom note, albeit one about food. It'd make a good coffee table book to stir up conversation among your more squeamish friends -- it's definitely a book that catches your eye, and lends itself to quickly browsing -- but it's probably not something you'll regularly revisit.

Again, I respect the author and the topic he set out to cover. But the execution just wasn't right.

If you are interested in learning more about gardening, foraging, or hunting/fishing, you'd do better to look elsewhere. For gardening basics, read through Eliot Coleman's books; for foraging instructions, Euell Gibbons is your man (and Samuel Thayer is doing a good job following in Gibbons' footsteps); and for hunting/fishing you'll learn much more by reading Hank Shaw's "Hunt, Gather, Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast" and Jesse Griffiths' "Afield: A Chef's Guide to Preparing and Cooking Wild Game and Fish."

HASH(0x9bdc1150) out of 5 stars A beautiful book 19 Oct. 2012
By TJ Lawson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book knowing there would not be a lot of new information for me. If you're looking for a book that is an intro to gardening, foraging, and hunting this is not. (As if those skills could be taught in one book) What this is is a great primer on a sustainable food lifestyle. It is far more than just food grown yourself, but food that is delicious! This book has several great recipes. I've tried a couple they were wonderful. I look forward to trying the rest. What this book is is beautiful. The photographs, the typeset, the way the cover is laid out, the quality of the paper stock. Worth the purchase. I could not be happier with it. It will be like a coffee table book in our house.

HASH(0x9b058e4c) out of 5 stars Beautiful, but not a lot of substance 31 Dec. 2013
By grizzlycat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a really beautiful book, but there was not a lot of real information in it. It's mainly a cookbook with great pictures, but if you're interested in hunting/foraging/gardening, you won't pick up any useful tips here.

HASH(0x9f1b11a4) out of 5 stars no just a cookbook! 18 Nov. 2012
By be-cause-blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Followed Rohan Andersons blog Wholelarderlove for quite a while, I knew this book was going to be special when he announced it. It needs a good eye to be a good photographer and that brings you down to the details/roots to what you see. As a logic consequence you start questioning yourself about what's going on around you and what role you play. He not just saw what's going on (wrongly), he did something against it, and changed his life more and more. This book is not just a cookbook with amazing images and recipes, no it is also a manual with a bigger picture in mind. A path to follow. He shares his knowledge of how to grow - gather - hunt and cook with you.

The recipes are easy to prepare (if you have got some basic experience with cooking). Down to earth meals prepared from what is mostly available within reach and not traveled half around the globe to finally reach the plate. Im already through all the information in the book and know we can start cooking.
In the meantime I hope Rohan will have the time and passion to write more books he shares with us.

HASH(0x9d14c264) out of 5 stars A worthy addition to my book stash 21 Mar. 2013
By Fiona - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love the eclectic and un-stuffy way this book was written and assembled. It feels less like a mass produced tome and more like a collection of photos, anecdoets and recipes compiled by a friend as a gift. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in becoming more self-sufficient and more in touch with the land and its gifts of food and forage.
