Anthony Martin, Environmental Studies' resident tracker and paleontologist, recently spent some time on the Georgia coast, doing field work for an upcoming book. While on Cumberland Island, he and his wife, Ruth, report that they dined on roasted 'possum. "It tasted pretty good," Martin says. The 'possum was caught and prepared by Carol Ruckdeschel, a naturalist who has been living on Cumberland for more than 30 years and knows how to live off the land. "It was a delight to spend four days in the field with her – we learned a lot!" Martin says. Be sure to ask him for the 'possum recipe next time you see him.
