(*NEW ARRIVAL*) (Foraging) Berndt Berglund & Clare Bolsby. The Edible Wild: A Complete Cookbook and Guide to Edible Wild Plants in Canada and Eastern North America


Illus. with drawings by E.B. Sanders. Jacket. First Edition. NY: Scribner's Sons, [1971].

Numerous recipes accompany descriptions of wild edible plants, which includes a lot of Native American lore and advice. Cattail ham under ashes, steamed fiddleheads in wine, arrowhead pancakes, wintergreen berry pie, milkweed stalks and wild onions in sour cream, etc. A book ahead of its time. Very good.
