Ever seen a tasty-looking plant or mushroom in a yard or forest but weren't sure if it would taste good...or even be edible? In The Scout's Guide to Wild Edibles, renowned forager Mike Krebill profiles 40 widely-found edible wild plants and mushrooms of North America, in a guide small enough to fit right in a pocket. The author offers clear color photos and positive-ID tips for each plant, along with lip-smacking recipes and engaging projects and activities for all skill levels. The Scout's Guide will help foragers locate, identify and safely enjoy wild edibles - with the added satisfaction of knowing exactly where their food came from. This is one of those "especially for now" kinds of books for the challenging times we are in.
