Wild Edible & Herbal Remedies Resources
« on: February 13, 2012, 02:28:35 PM »
One of the Bushcraft/Outdoor skill areas that I have become more serious about since last year is Wild Edible & Herbal Remedies. I was always interested in the topic and wanted to learn more. I collect books and read as much as I can on everything so here are the best books I have found on these topics so I thought I'd share what I like. What are your favorite books or media on these topics? Anyone else read these?

For Wild Edibles these three books are the best I have read.
#1) Edible Wild Plants: Wild Foods From Dirt To Plate (The Wild Food Adventure Series, Book 1) by John Kallas
This is his first book out and I can't wait for more.
2) The Forager's Harvest: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants by Samuel Thayer
*He has a DVD that supplements this book but I have not bought it yet but will soon. Has anyone seen it?
#3) Nature's Garden: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants by Samuel Thayer

For Herbal Medicine this is the best all around book I have found. This author has several other books but I do not have them yet as I think this one will cover as much as I need.

I'm going to put serious effort into wild edible, tree, and track identification this summer. I'm so terrible with trees, it's embarrassing.

Hey pickledpinecone I am with you on the trees. I could use some practice. Here is the best book out there now in my opinion for tree ID.

Some of those books have been on want list but for now I downloaded the wild edibles app and have been happy with that so far. I do need to get out and do some pratice with it.

Here is a preview of the app.

Hmm this is another reason that I should upgrade to one of those fancy Google Phones.
