Description



Book Synopsis



The beautifully illustrated, definitive guide to foraging, harvesting, and preparing wild plants for food and medicine

Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants in Wild (and Not So Wild) Places shows readers how to find and prepare more than five hundred different plants for nutrition and better health. It includes information on common plants such as mullein (a tea made from the leaves and flowers suppresses a cough), stinging nettle (steam the leaves and you have a tasty dish rich in iron), cattail (cooked stalks taste similar to corn and are rich in protein), and wild apricots (an infusion made with the leaves is good for stomach aches and digestive disorders).

More than 260 detailed line drawings help readers identify a wide range of plants--many of which are suited for cooking by following the more than thirty recipes included in this book. There are literally hundreds of plants readily available underfoot waiting to be harvested and used either as food or as a potential therapeutic. This book is both a field guide to nature's bounty and a source of intriguing information about the plants that surround us.

Review Quotes




"'Wildman' [Steve Brill] has done it again. [He] has written a book that inspires, delights, and provides wonderful food for thought for anyone interested in foraging. This book will be of interest to a great range of people, from parks commissioners and managers to herbalists and hikers. If taken to heart, it will provide the reader with an increased sensitivity to, and understanding of, the plant world and its potential to improve our quality of life." -- Michael J. Balick, PhD, the New York Botanical Garden

"A touch of 'wild, ' a 'dash' of brilliant, and a bunch of Brill, not to be taken with a grain of salt." -- Jim Duke, economic botanist, USDA
