Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants
Stackpole Books, 1974 - 256 Seiten
Abstract: More than 100 wild foods may be identified with the aid of this illustrated, full-color field guide to the edible plants growing wild in the U.S. and Canada. An alphabetized directory leads the reader to such wild plants as cowslip, dandelion, elderberry, highbush crannberry, Jerusalem artichoke, horseradish, Miner's lettuce, mustard, plantain, New Jersey tea, sassafras, water cress and wild onion. Each entry lists the botanical family and common names of the plant, a description, and notes on its geographic distribution and edibility. The illustrations help the would-be gatherer in identifying wild fruits, nuts, roots, tubers, greens and seeds. Edible plants still grow everywhere and they are free.
