Great resource!

A handy guide for both rural residents and urban dwellers interested in learning how to find, store and cook wild plants found almost everywhere. Well-organized in easily-read chapters, this is a great stepping off point for anyone who wants to learn how to introduce delicious, nutritious foodstuffs in a way that is simple, accessible and very economical.

Ready for some Nettle soup!

I was surprised with the wealth of information about 31 edible wild
plants. I knew some of them and have used them for tea (Chamomile),
soup (Nettle), or juice (Elder). I was surprised to learn about much
more that are out there! The book gives practical advice how to
identify, forage, and process wild plants. If you are an aspiring
botanist, you need to heed the advice of the book and read the whole
book before running in the wild and collecting plants! Great read.
Very informative. Loved it! I only wish the book gave a reference of
the author(s) of the book as I am sure they invested a lot of time and
efforts to compile all the information. I highly recommend the book!

Two thumbs up!

An easy read, “Edible Wild Plants for Beginners: The Essential Edible Plants and Recipes to Get Started” by Althea Press is a helpful guide to wild edible plants for those interested in gathering their own plants. The information shared ranges from a general overview of the history of wild edible plants to a vivid description of 31 North American plants and their specific uses (in recipes and remedies). Two thumbs up for this one if, like me, you are a nature lover but not an expert on plants!
