Euell Gibbons was one of the few people in this country to devote a considerable part of his life to the adventure of "living off the land". His greatest pleasure was seeking out wild plants, which he made into delicious dishes. The plants he gathers and prepares in Stalking the Wild Asparagus are widely available everywhere in North America. There are recipes for delicious vegetable and casserole dishes, breads, cakes, muffins, and twenty different pies. He also shows how to make numerous jellies, jams, teas, and wines, and how to sweeten them with wild honey or homemade maple syrup.

In recipes and reminiscences equally delicious, Edna Lewis celebrates the uniquely American country cooking she grew up with some fifty years ago in a small Virginia Piedmont farming community that had been settled by freed slaves. With menus for the four seasons, she shares the ways her family prepared and enjoyed food, savoring the delights of each special time of year: • The fresh taste of spring—the first shad, wild mushrooms, garden strawberries, field greens and salads . . . honey from woodland bees . . . a ring mold of chicken with wild mushroom sauce . . . the treat of braised mutton after sheepshearing. • The feasts of summer—garden-ripe vegetables and fruits relished at the peak of flavor . . . pan-fried chicken, sage-flavored pork tenderloin, spicy baked tomatoes, corn pudding, fresh blackberry cobbler, and more, for hungry neighbors on Wheat-Threshing Day . . . Sunday Revival, the event of the year, when Edna’s mother would pack up as many as fifteen dishes (what with her pickles and breads and pies) to be spread out on linen-covered picnic tables under the church’s shady oaks . . . hot afternoons cooled with a bowl of crushed peaches or hand-cranked custard ice cream. • The harvest of fall—a fine dinner of baked country ham, roasted newly dug sweet potatoes, and warm apple pie after a day of corn-shucking . . . the hunting season, with the deliciously “different” taste of game fattened on hickory nuts and persimmons . . . hog-butchering time and the making of sausages and liver pudding . . . and Emancipation Day with its rich and generous thanksgiving dinner. • The hearty fare of winter—holiday time, the sideboard laden with all the special foods of Christmas for company dropping by . . . the cold months warmed by stews, soups, and baked beans cooked in a hearth oven to be eaten with hot crusty bread before the fire. The scores of recipes for these marvelous dishes are set down in loving detail. We come to understand the values that formed the remarkable woman—her love of nature, the pleasure of living with the seasons, the sense of community, the satisfactory feeling that hard work was always rewarded by her mother’s good food. Having made us yearn for all the good meals she describes in her memories of a lost time in America, Edna Lewis shows us precisely how to recover, in our own country or city or suburban kitchens, the taste of the fresh, good, natural country cooking that was so happy a part of her girlhood in Freetown, Virginia.

"Life Goes On ... But Are You Going On With Your Life"? This is easier said than done. Before you can begin the path through grief, I feel we must first go back to the beginning of your relationship with your spouse. For it is at this point you will first be able to get in touch with your inner self and with the essence of the beginning of your emotional connection. The path through grief is a dark and lonely trail, one you have to endure without assistance. There is no "proper" or "improper" method, map, or schedule about HOW to endure it. There is no guide about the affect on you or on those around you. You must learn how to cope on a daily basis ... One Day at a Time. You must realize that you will make mistakes and be a big enough person to realize that and not be ashamed to admit it... either to yourself or to others. "Life is not measured by the number or breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away" LOVE IS FOREVER May God bless all who read this book. I hope it has given you a little bit of inner peace, of comfort and a sense of closeness to the loved one who has gone before you IN MEMORY
