How to live like a King when the wolf is at the door-Euell Gibbons Beachcombers handbook

Euell Gibbons is one of my all time favorite authors . He was a very popular author back in the seventies you don't hear much about anymore. His books on wild foods were some of the best written. He never claimed wild foods were better for anybody, he merely loved food and knew a lot of wild plants,fish and animals tasted wonderful and wanted to share the information with people. His books Stalking the Wild Asparagus and Stalking the blue eyed Scallop were bought by me years ago and I almost wore them out. However, his book, the Beachcombers handbook was a terrible book for a young boy to read. In his beachcomber book he described a time in his life when he worked a s a caretakers for a rich persons beachfront property in Hawaii. Euell only needed to spend an hour or two a day for his work and spent the rest of his day fishing and sailing and hunting and living off the land and sea, going out on the ocean every day and hanging out with locals on the beach that loved doing what he did. It sure made any other occupation seem like a terrible waste of time. Euell has some great wild food recipes, a lot of wild food wisdom and knowledge, but just as important, a good enjoyment of life that he was able to share in his writings. Euell's books were a lot better than he ever got credit for.
