About this book

Some wild edible plants have very poisonous look-alikes and it is vital to know the difference. Edible Wild Plants is the essential pocket-sized, folding guide to familiar edible berries, nuts, leaves and plants found in North America and advises how to harvest them. This beautifully illustrated guide identifies over 100 familiar species and includes a section on dangerous poisonous plants. Created and printed in the USA, and updated in 2012 with a new cover design and updated species selection, it conveniently folds to fit in a back pocket so you have vital information readily available when you need it.
