The Complete Guide to Edible Wild Plants
Whether you’re an avid adventurer or a backyard explorer, The Complete Guide to Edible Wild Plants will give you a better understanding of how to identify and prepare edible wild plants. Casual readers will enjoy learning what they could eat along their favorite walking path or out of their own backyard, but this guide really shines in survival situations like backpacking, off-grid camping or in an emergency. In-depth details and color photos help you distinguish poisonous plants from ones that are safe to eat, as well as determine which plant parts are edible and how to best prepare them for consumption. You'll also find lots of other crucial information, like whether or not a plant has medicinal value, or if it can be turned into practical items like soap and tools.
