About this book

The Pacific Northwest is a veritable feast for foragers. The forests, meadows, streambanks, and even the weedy margins of neighborhoods are home to a surprising number of delicious wild edible plants. Douglas Deur, a lifetime Northwest forager, shares his insights and experiences, showing you what to look for, when and where to look, and how to gather in a responsible way.

Pacific Northwest Foraging is a hardworking guide packed with detailed information and clear photography for the safe identification of more than 120 wild plants. It also features a seasonal guide for foraging year-round and collecting tips for sustainable harvesting. It is applicable to Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and southeast Alaska.

"Pacific Northwest Foraging may change the way you see the world."
– Valerie Easton, Pacific Northwest Magazine
