About this book

From high mountain peaks and broad valleys to high deserts and lush forests, the US mountain states are rich with wild edibles. Forager and herbalist Briana Wiles helps you find the most delicious plants in the region – like the spicy flowers of wild onion, the tender spears of spring asparagus, or sweet late-summer blueberries.

Try infused vinegars from spruce tips, juniper berries, and wild caraway seeds. Make a stinging nettle pesto with freshly foraged piñon nuts. Create a rosehip-flavoured honey for herbal teas. Whether you venture out into the forest, the canyons, or the snow-peaked mountains, Mountain States Foraging will help you find an abundance of wild plants right outside your door. With this savvy guide, you'll learn what to look for, when and where to look, and how to gather in a responsible way.

Covers Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Nevada, Idaho, the eastern sides of Washington and Oregon, and the southernmost parts of Alberta and Saskatchewan.
