All around us there are wild plants good for food, medicine, clothing, and shelter, but most of us don't know how to identify or use them.

Extensively illustrated with black-and-white drawings and color photos, this book includes the following special features: ? Recipes for foods made from edible wild plants. ? Wild teas and spices. ? Wild plant dyes, with instructions for preparing the plants and dying wool, cotton, and other materials. ? Instructions for preparing fibers for use in making baskets, textiles, and paper. ? Information on wild plants used for making rubber, wax, oil, and soap. ? Information on medicinal uses of plants. ? An identification guide to hay fever plants and plants that cause rashes. ? Instructions for distinguishing edible from poisonous berries. ? Detailed information on poisonous plants, including poison ivy, oak, and sumac, as well as herbal treatments for their rashes.
