You needn't be any kind of an expert, even in this day of space travel and atomic power, to begin eating wild foods, unspoiled and free. If you will positively identify everything before you gather it--made easy by this field guide with its detailed descriptions and its illustrations in full color-- you will never have any trouble. In particular, this guide groups species together that are closely related and used the same way. It is unique in its breadth of coverage of more than 150 species across North America, from the swamps of Florida to the tundra of the North Slope. This revised edition of a classic field guide includes characteristics, distribution, and edibility of over 130 wild plants.
