Book Description

21 Native Wild Edible Plants by Mors Kochanski
The few wild plants listed here are likely the only ones that are about as close as domestic plants can be in digestability. Of the 1800 flowering plants in Alberta, about 800 are mentioned as being used as food. I suspect some wild edible plants may require weeks to really acclimatize to them.

2.0 out of 5 stars 21 Native Wild Edible Plants July 27, 2014

This "could" have been an excellent survival resource, "if" it had been illustrated using colored drawings or photos. While the book repeatedly warns of the dangers inherent in ingesting some wild plants that resemble benign varieties, but which are poisonous, the black lined sketches do little to aid one in differentiating one type from the other.

World renowned author list and describes 21 plants everyone who has an interest in foraging should know. Yes, color photos would be better than the drawings, but then you know you always should use multiple sources to identify plants don't you? Just the list of the plants he picked are worth the small price of this ebook.

Basic entry level publication. I wanted more from this book. There are plants I will not find in my area cutting the practical information down. Good for a first book to prep for more study, and for gosh sake ALWAYS use several sources. This would be good for a first book however I knew everything in it already. Bad choice for myself but not for others. On a kindle touch drawings/pics are useless, you have been forewarned.....
