Summary
By chance, Greene, a poet and nonfiction author, bought a property that is part of one of the most densely populated wild boar habitats in Europe. Writing in conversational narrative style with a sense of humor, he takes readers through Europe and the American South to explore the legend and reality of the wild boar, looking at the boar's natural history and life cycle, habitat threats, and hunting. He traces the boar throughout history in art, mythology, and folktales, starting with cave paintings. He also explores the boar's culinary role and provides recipes. Colorful characters readers will meet along the way include museum curators, hunters, chefs, and those who live near boars in their natural habitat. The book is illustrated with b&w photos and illustrations. The author teaches at the American University of Paris. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
