About this book

This is a handy, easy-to-use guide to the abundant edible plant life of Alaska. Drawing on centuries of knowledge that have kept the Inupiat people healthy, the book uses photographs and descriptions to teach new-comers to the North how to recognize which plants are safe to eat.

Organized by seasons, from spring greens through summer berries to autumn roots, the book also features an appendix identifying poisonous plants.
