an exceptional wild plant book

Postby martha » Fri Aug 23, 2013 6:42 am

I've collected lotsa wild edible plant books but this is the best!! The Forager's Harvest, A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting and Preparing Edible Wild Plants. by Samuel Thayer. He covers less plants than other books but with far greater useful information which is clearly based on extensive experience rather than research and regurgitation. I'm gonna buy every book he's written, I can't praise him enough. I feel this book gives me good direction with practical methods for gathering and preparing common and useful plants.

I got it on Amazon. You should maybe check the other reviews, it's really fabulous. I doubt there's a pdf, but don't know for sure.

:) Thank you for your great suggestions for Edible wild plant books. May I also suggest "Edible Wild Plants" by Thomas S. Elias & Peter A. Dykeman. It is complete with color photo's, plant habitat, preparation instructions and even edible use symbols beside each plant listed to aid in quick identification of ALL the ways you can prepare the plant. Also, might I suggest (for Bug-out purposes and preparation), that one thoroughly research the specific plants found in YOUR area and try to familiarize yourself with identification as much as possible. Particularly trees, many of which have leaves or needles which can be made into tea or may even have medicinal uses. God bless...
