Call of the Mild: Learning to Hunt My Own Dinner by Lily Raff McCaulou
Call of the Mild: Learning to Hunt My Own Dinner

JKH307, September 17, 2012

A 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.
