Wild Food Cookbook.

If you have ever wondered how to prepare fiddlehead ferns, snapping turtles, acorns, squirrels, muskrat, beaver, porcupine, raccoon or opossum for the table, Wild Food Cookbook, by Frances Hamerstrom, is the book for you.

A wildlife biologist by profession, the author tells how to fix just about anything that can be caught, picked or shot. Recipes are accompanied by humorous and educational anecdotes.

The book is roughly divided into four sections: spring, summer, fall and winter, with information on preparing the bounty from each.
