End of The Omnivore's Dilemma

The last third of the book was about Pollan planning and getting the items he needed for his perfect meal. He starts out by talking about how to hunt and kill a pig for the meat part of his meal. The second part is the gathering part where he finds mushrooms and other greens. During both of these events he has a help from a friend that gathers and hunts for most of his food. The rest is him making his meal and eating with the people that helped him out along the way.
In my opinion I believe this part of the book is really interesting and could be helpful to someone that wants to try foraging. It was nice that he was in great detail when talking about hunting and the gathering of mushrooms and other plants. I think the main point of this part and book was to show it was possible to do something like this and also to show that it helps if we know where our food was made and what exactly our food is.
