Product description


An Amazon Best of June pick!

“Delves into not only what we eat around the world, but what we once ate and what we have lost since then.”
A New York Times Book Review Summer Reading Selection

“La Cerva’s beautifully written narrative is as tantalizing as it is edifying.”
Publishers Weekly ★ review

“It is rare these days to find a food book with a truly original take on food. Feasting Wild gives you a great deal to think about and at the same time is a pleasure to read.”
Mark Kurlansky, New York Times bestselling author of Salmon: A Fish, the Earth, and the History of Their Common Fate and Salt: A World History

“An extraordinary book. My mouth watered, my mind expanded, and my heart broke and was remade through this superb writing.”
David George Haskell, author of Pulitzer finalist The Forest Unseen

“This is the food book I’ve always wanted to read—a witty, illuminating, and beautifully written travelogue that rightly centers the historical role of women and the importance of Indigenous knowledge. Throw away the trite faux-wisdom of dietitians and gorge yourself instead on the charming platter that Gina Rae La Cerva has served up.”
Ed Yong, author of I Contain Multitudes

“A delightful culinary travel book.”
Outside Magazine

“La Cerva reveals the landscape in brightly lit detail and gives generously of herself, and the result makes for a suitably satisfying feast.”
Science Magazine

“By turns lyrical, melancholy, and invigorating, Feasting Wild is an enthralling and necessary meditation on what it means to love the feral in a world increasingly of our making.”
Taras Grescoe, author of Possess the Air, Straphanger, and Bottomfeeder

“Eloquent and utterly original. Page after page I savored the thrill of a sentence driving home a surprising new way to think about the world.”
George Johnson, author of The Ten Most Beautiful Experiments

Feasting Wild is a rich literary banquet, its pages a smorgasbord of intrepid travelogue, unflinching memoir, and keen ecological history. Where the worldviews of Cheryl Strayed and Michael Pollan converge, you’ll find this perspective, big-hearted, beautifully crafted book.”
Ben Goldfarb, author of Eager: The surprising, Secret Life of Beavers and Why They Matter

“La Cerva demonstrates her ability for diligent observation, and […] offers glimpses of human activities that have grown increasingly rare.”
Kirkus Reviews

“A curious, passionate, and beautifully poetic book. La Cerva uncovers something essential about our enduring desire for wildness in a world where it is rapidly vanishing.”
James Prosek, artist and author of Trout: An Illustarted History

“Gina Rae La Cerva is a modern-day hunter-gatherer, scouring the planet to bring us delicious stories and lessons about our world. Her writing is original and thought-provoking, and even though it's not always palatable how we've transformed our native flora and fauna, her adventurous storytelling is endlessly satisfying.”
Daniel Stone, author of The Food Explorer

“Gina Rae La Cerva’s engrossing book celebrates wild-harvested food but also mourns it, showing how plentiful staples have dwindled time and again to overexploited luxuries. Mixing memoir, travelogue, and environmental history, Feasting Wild is a lyrical and lucid exploration of hunger and fulfillment, richly detailed and beautifully told.” 
Thor Hanson, author of Buzz and The Triumph of Seeds

“[La Cerva's] writing pulls together personal narrative and research in a way that is not only accessible, but intensely revealing, taking us back through time, across oceans and land, and impressing upon us all that is lost when we forgo or commodify wildness.”
Madison Cruz, Literati Bookstore, Ann Arbor, MI
