Personal Tale of Love, Loss, & Hunting
'Call of the Mild' is a quick read, and at almost 300 pages I mean that as complimentary as possible. The author's style is fluid and effortless, her succinct description of what it is to move to a mountain (ski) town is spot on. Her descriptions of learning to hunt are humorous (particularly the hunter safety class), insightful, and educational.
A memoir written in one's early 30s can often be suspect, Lily Raff McCaulou debunks that notion in the first few pages, and the rest is simply a joy to read.
I look forward to more of her work, and wish her the best in life, regardless of if she is looking through a scope or not.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Lily was very candid in sharing her thoughts and emotions throughout her journey of hunting. As a new hunter, I found myself thinking about the exact same things as I went through the process and when I finally killed an animal I experienced a wide range of emotions that I could not understand. Lily helped show me that everything I felt was completely normal. I highly recommend this book to hunters and non-hunters alike! She has some great points and thoughts that are good for everyone to think about in regards to the origins of the meat on our dinner plates.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
