Stalking the Blue-eyed Scallop, Euell Gibbons, McKay, 1964.

The late Euell Gibbons was indefatigable in his quest for foods to nourish mankind that could be found free by foraging around the countryside. He was a good writer, a joy to visit, and an amusing conversationalist. These are both fascinating volumes, which I once told him should be titled The Best Things in Life Are Free.
