For diversity and the ability to truly identify and use plants, I purchased Nature's Garden - "A guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants by Samuel Thayer, The Forager's Harvest - A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting and Preparing Edible Wild Plants" also by Samuel Thayer, and Edible Wild Plants - Wild Foods from Dirt to Plate by John Kallas, PhD. If you can afford it, purchase all 3 of these books, as I have found that I USE all of them for various reasons - a better photo/recipe/information, etc. And if there is any doubt about a plant I have several resources to better help me identify the information that I need.
I purchased this book for my mother. She lives in Oregon, and is always trying to identify things on her property. I liked this book so much when I received it to give to her- I purchased another for myself.
Everyone who loves nature and likes to know what they are walking around, and if it's edible- this is your book!
On top of that, I went to the author's website and found a long list of workshops, with a variety of topics to learn and experience. They were mostly in Oregon, some were in other parts of the PNW or US in general. I hope to take my mom up to one someday soon!
