Pellegrini is not a product of the eponymous food networks, but rather is, like Michael Pollan, a philosopher of food, a classically trained chef, and a lyrical storyteller -- who has actually decided to put her shotgun where her mouth is and go after her ingredients. Its a sublimely entertaining read, and a great gift for anyone who wants to learn how to travel over field and stream to table.

Georgia Pellegrini's second fine book makes allies of two large cohorts of people, foodies and hunters. That space, only lightly populated in the modern era, is significantly revitalized by Pellegrini. At the core of this book is her rediscovery of what most of our ancestors accepted de facto. Pellegrini sets out and beautifully recounts with humor, humility and in delightful detail, her days among experienced hunters, respect for firearms, the protocol of the hunt, and reverential harvest. Pellegrini learns from some of the best. She tells of geographic glories, flora, history, and the varieties of wildlife. Then there are the recipes. Many, many wonderful recipes, clearly set out for both the novice and the veteran. Always engaging, Pellegrini changes things up; just when you expect her to take a written excursion here, she goes there. It keeps one reading! In the end, you want one more anecdotal morsel. However, like the animals we eat -- as well as our own earthly lives -- there is an ineffable arc. Georgia Pellegrini is in the ascendant, thus I expect and look forward to what she may yet sink her teeth in -- and tell us all about it.

Girl Hunter was interesting and inspiring. Pellegrini has a way with words that makes you feel as though you are sitting in the deer stand with her. This book makes you crave wild game and the nostalgic living off the land lifestyle.

Half story telling, half recipe book, all entertaining. Always love a good story about self realization and this one is no exception. Pellegrini's attention to detail takes the reader out in the early morning hunt with her. The book is inspiring and causes the reader to re-examine his or her relationship with the food they eat.

It is just bad hunting stories and recipes. The recipes are better than her hunting stories.
