It's a good book. It's not a recipe book and the insights are
very much modern. Afterall he's in pursuit of the modern meal
and getting back to the roots of what we eat. Hunting, growing corn
as a cultivated mono grass, etc. It's very well written. It's coming out
in paper later on
in the spring, I think. Copies ought to be available at a used price if you
don't want to spring for $26.95.
