The meat of the book though is the plant identification section, I live in Eastern Washington and was worried that, as with other "Pacific Northwest" books, it would only focus on the west side of the state, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a large diversity of plants that we do have in our area. Each plant also has suggestions on how to prepare and eat what you forage.
I do wish there were a few more ID photos of each plant, but we have been able to find and wildcraft elderberries (which we turned into a syrup for winter coughs,) as well as oregon grapes, so far. Moreover the book has made him (and me now!) hungry for more knowledge about edible native plants and foraging.
The book does have some good information like which part of the pant to use and when is a good time to harvest but if you were hoping to learn how to identify edibles in the PNW look elsewhere.
