About the Author
Euell Gibbons was born in Red River County, Texas, and made a living in various ways--as a cowboy, hobo, carpenter, surveyor, boat builder, beachcomber, newspaperman, farmer, and teacher--throughout many states, before writing his first book, Stalking the Wild Asparagus, in 1962 at age fifty-one.
Stalking the Blue-Eyed Scallop is a cookbook, nature guide, and remembrance that pulls you in like a riptide. It is particularly illuminating about all the fine seafood we can gather on our shores, with beautiful descriptions of their habitats and behavior, and not least, recipes for some of the most unique and savory dishes you will ever enjoy.
Gibbons is one of America's most original writers about nature and food, and I've followed his advice about the gathering of periwinkles, edible seaweed and such and cooked a la Gibbons with delicious results. This book is the best antidote to mechanized modern life. I can't think of any other that has given me as much pleasure each time I've picked it up.
A practical guide to the edibles that about in and around tidal areas, and these are more numerous than the average man dreams of. It is conceivable that, equipped with the book, an adventurous spirit might live for endless time with a minimum expenditure of money for food other than sugar, salt, flour, and other pantry staples.
