Description

"The Wild Life" is John Lewis-Stempel's account of twelve months eating only food shot, caught or foraged from the fields, hedges, and brooks of his forty-acre farm. Nothing from a shop and nothing raised from agriculture. Could it even be done? We witness the season-by-season drama as the author survives on Nature's larder, trains Edith, a reluctant gundog, and conjures new recipes. And, above all, we see him get closer to Nature. Because, after all, you're never closer to Nature than when you're trying to kill it or pick it. Lyrical, observant and 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.

Author Biography

In 1996 John Lewis-Stempel convinced his London-born wife to up sticks from the city and move to Herefordshire where his family have lived for five centuries. As well as hunting for wild food, he farms cattle and sheep. He is also the author of a number of books, including the recent The Autobiography of the British Soldier, reviewed by the Daily Express as 'What a book. Five stars'. He has two children.
