The Skillful Forager is the ultimate forager’s guide to working with any wild plant in the field, kitchen, or pantry.

Featuring detailed identification information for over forty wild edibles commonly found across North America, the plant profiles in this book focus on sustainable harvesting techniques that can be applied to hundreds of other plants. This indispensable reference also provides simple recipes that can help you make the most of each season.
