About the Author
Mark Vorderbruggen started one of the top foraging sites on the internet in 2008, but he has been a forager all his life. Both his parents' families used foraged foods to survive during the Great Depression, and they passed their knowledge on to him. Knowing how to harvest nature's free food fed him through the poverty years of his childhood and while getting a master's degree in medicinal chemistry and a PhD in physical organic chemistry. For the last 18 years, he has worked as a research chemist in the oil industry, using his knowledge of natural products to develop environmentally friendly replacements for traditional oil field chemicals. However, his evenings and weekends are spent guiding people back to nature's bounty, not only teaching them which plants are edible and/or medicinal, but also proselytizing how foraging heals the body, mind, and soul … and prepares them for the zombie apocalypse!

Amaranth, Cat’s Ear, Cleaver, Dandolion, Henbit, Peppergrass, Sow Thistle, and Horsemint.
Pretty sure I have a half-dozen more, I just haven’t located them yet.
I love this book, especially the pictures of all stages of growth (and similar plants to watch out for)!
If you're looking for a well done and trusted source for delving into the world of foraging, this is a must have!
The illustration along with the written disruption make identifying these wild edibles easy.
And the zone growing guides makes it easy to know when the different plants are likely to be available in your area.
This is a great addition to any foragers library.
I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in foraging wild edibles.
