Product description

Product Description

This is a book on the edible wild greens, roots, seeds, grains, nuts and mushrooms you can find in cities in Eastern North America. It is based on over four decades of experience, and about three decades of continuous research. Not just what you can eat, but what looks similar, and what you should know not to eat. This is a good book for the beginner to the more experienced who want to identify, learn about, and incorporate some good tasting and nutritious wild foods into their diet, that can be found in urban environments. It teaches you the basics of wild food hunting, how to identify dangerous plants, and even what plants not to touch. This book is based on "Nature's Restaurant: Fields, Forests & Wetlands Foods of Eastern North America", but this book focuses exclusively on what is available to be found in a city environment.

Instead of being an electronic print text of a paper book, this is an attempt to make a new kind of book. It makes use of the constantly updated information available on the web, by use of 4,133 external links. When you see a highlighted and underlined word, click on it and it opens a new page in your web browser to show you pictures on Google or Bing Images, takes you to definitions on Wikipedia, shows you distribution maps or useful diagrams. Since this information is always being updated and new pictures being added, this book keeps up with that because it links you to the most up-to-date information.

It is a large book with 322 photos, maps and diagrams, and 3,030 external links. There are also 461 internal links for simplifying navigation. In each entry on each plant it has the common names, the Latin name with a link, what to look for, the season to find it, where to find it, what might look like it, what you should be cautious of when gathering it, how to use it for food and how to cook it, a description of growing that plant at home or getting it started in a local field or woods, a description table for the plant, links to recipes, links to photos on the web, links to distribution maps, included distribution maps and some entries have photos or drawings included.

The book is designed to work best on a device like a computer, laptop or tablet where you can read the book with the free Kindle for PC reader, and where there is a web browser. You can use it as well on a dedicated reader, but be aware, if there isn't a browser on the same device, the external links will not be able to open a page.
