Fact or Fiction:
I grew up hunting and fishing as part of my heritage.  I enjoyed the "Meat Eater: Adventures from the Life of an American Hunter" by Steven Rinella as it takes you through his maturation as one of the world's most notable hunters.  In particular, I related to his exploration of hunting as a core component of the human condition, that was only relatively recently departed from in favor of farmed foods.  Given that he is also a wild game chef, the book is interspersed with cooking tips as well.  This isn't for everybody, but if you are a hunter or curious about the allure of hunting, this is a good read.
