... how to stay alive in the woods, by bradford angier
i don't know who this man is, but he is a genuis. so far i have learned that basically anything is edible, or worth trying to eat when lost in the wilderness... except mushrooms. stear clear of mushrooms!!! this must have a day to day parallel, some metaphor for us in the civilized world. something like: what are the mushrooms in your life?
goal for the next year:
-identify edible plants in the manitoba wilderness and eat them
-be wary of things that grow in piles of metaphorical manure
