Publisher Comments:

A comprehensive guide to nearly 2000 wild edible plants in the Western U.S., SW Canada and NW Mexico, including methods of preparation and how to avoid poisonous plants.

Synopsis:

A husband and wife team with Donald Kirk author and Janice Kirk illustrator. Still a popular book, but in its heyday, it kept us hopping to print more books than went out the door! Nearly 2000 species of wild edible plants found in the western United States and in southwestern Canada and northwestern Mexico are covered. Various methods of preparing wild foods and warnings to avoid poisonous plants are given.

This is the encyclopedia of western edible plants. Has everything! Every wild food enthusiast should have it. For beginners, this is a reference guide and not necessarily a 'how to.'For that you may need other books.
