Mountain States Foraging: 115 Wild and Flavorful Edibles from Alpine Sorrel to Wild Hops

By Briana Wiles

From high mountain peaks and broad valleys to high deserts and lush forests, the mountain states are rich with wild edibles. Forager and herbalist Briana Wiles helps you find the most delicious plants in the region—like the spicy flowers of wild onion, the tender spears of spring asparagus, or sweet late-summer blueberries.

Try infused vinegars from spruce tips, juniper berries, and wild caraway seeds. Make a stinging nettle pesto with freshly foraged piñon nuts. Create a rosehip-flavored honey for herbal teas. Whether you venture out into the forest, the canyons, or the snow-peaked mountains, this book will help you find an abundance of wild plants right outside your door. With this savvy guide you’ll learn what to look for, when and where to look, and how to gather in a responsible way.

Covers Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Nevada, Idaho, the eastern sides of Washington and Oregon, and the southernmost parts of Alberta and Saskatchewan.
