The recipes are organized by season, with each season broken down further by month. With each passing chapter, Ebert details what’s seasonally available to hunt, fish, forage, and garden. She takes us on a yearlong journey of cooking and eating wild foods. The book kickoff in September with a dove hunt. January might be recognized as the beginning of a new year for grocery store shoppers, but hunters across the country recognize September as the true New Year of hunting, when last year's game is gone and seasons are beginning to open anew.
