Book was more interesting than I thought it would be. Filled with author’s real life examples of what he has done to get his kids outside and interacting with nature. Good ideas and practical advice.

[American Buffalo] was a hard read, not because it was poorly written but because of some of the events detailed. Rinella does a wonderful job of highlighting the buffalo's history, much of it little known. But, in addition to chef, he's also a hunter, and the premise of the book centers on his attempt to bring one of these great beasts down so that he can slaughter and eat it. I'm not a hunter, don't truck with hunters - not on the level of needing to have a philosophical argument with the group. But it was hard to read how enamored he was of the buffalo when he kept bringing the story back to his hunt (which was 100% legal, by the way). Honestly, I skipped over the parts of the book when he succeeds and begins to field dress a buffalo, thinking at that point I didn't even want to finish the books. But he redeems the narrative, not because he has a change of heart - though he does - but because he honestly worked through what he'd done and how it affected him. So, I don't know that I'd 'recommend' the book for just anyone, but I ended up finishing and keeping the book.… (mais)

Steven Rinella, host of Netflix's MeatEater, is an avid outdoorsman and hunter. Coming from a tight-knit family bonded by the outdoors, this novel is written to try to engage families in nature.

As a fellow nature enthusiast, this book immediately caught my eye. I have always wanted a written guide with tips on raising my young children to respect and love nature. I had a certain idea of what I thought this book would have based off the description, but I found it was not what I thought. I had hoped to see a lot of tips, examples of activities, and some personal background pertaining to those topics. Instead, I found that the tips were hard to find, specific examples of activities weren't stated clearly, and there was more personal backstory than anything else. It seemed to be rambling quite a bit. While that rambling had wisdom and was interesting to read, it was not that important to the overall goal of the book. I would have loved to see more bulleted tips and specific activities to implement.

Having stated what I did not like, there was still a lot I did like. I appreciated the feeling of inspiration knowing any family can do this. We actually ventured into 25 degree weather for a lovely hike because of that inspiration! It was wonderful to read how the Rinella family has bonded and grown together in nature. It is a beautiful picture to think that my family can accomplish this, too. Steven Rinella is definitely knowledgeable and this book shows it. If you are looking for more of a memoir and inspirational book to help your family engage with nature, this is a great resource. If you are looking for what I first thought this was, you may want to find another guide. Overall, this was a good read.

After hunter and outdoorsman Steven Rinella unearthed an old buffalo skull while out in the Wyoming wilderness he became slightly obsessed with the animals. American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon follows his obsession that culminates in an actual buffalo hunt in Alaska after winning one of the few prized hunting licenses the US gives out for buffalo. This book is not going to win any writing awards, but Rinella does a solid job of interspersing the narrative of the hunt with plenty of interesting historical information and stories. There are a few moments of too much gore and details, but he manages to write the hunting aspects in a way that readers can really feel his respect and care for the animals he kills. I highly recommend this book for readers who enjoy narrative nonfiction, American history, and nature stories. I listened to the audio which was read by the author — always a plus for me.… (mais)
