Jim Harrison's essays are just great. He has a passion for real food, as opposed to "zoo food" fed to us animals by corporate agri-businesses and Macfranchises. And he recommends lots of red wine, as all the doctors are telling us now anyway. A great read.

(From the back cover) Mario Batali said of this writer "Jim Harrison is the Homer, the Michelangelo, the Lamborghini, the Willie Mays, the Secretariat of words...his words are the lust-filled poems of an expert, a hunter, an eater."

This is a guy's book of hunting, cooking, eating, and name dropping of famous people (he is also a screenwriter for Hollywood). A very different kind of "food" book!
