Description: Offers an account of the author's twelve months of eating only food shot, caught or foraged from the fields, hedges, copse and brook of his forty-acre farm. This book takes readers on a Thoreau-esque journey through a landscape that is true England.
Synopsis: Walking around his Herefordshire farm one October, John Lewis-Stempel saw a trout flash in the brook, mushrooms sprinkle the fields, a squirrel eat hazelnuts, and thought: Wouldn't it be wonderful if one could live just on what Nature provided for free? "The Wild Life" is John's account of twelve months eating only food shot, caught or foraged from the fields, hedges, copse and brook of his forty-acre farm. Nothing from a shop and nothing raised from agriculture. Could it even be done? John takes the reader on a Thoreau-esque journey through a landscape that is true England as he uncovers the ancient past of his five-hundred-year-old farm and the startling symmetries between his life now and that of the farm's peasant founders. Lyrical, observant and sometimes mordantly funny, "The Wild Life" is an extraordinary celebration of our natural heritage. And a testament to the importance of getting back to one's roots - spiritually and practically.
