Although I have over 200 books on foraging in my collection, I would rate this as one of the very best.

A passionate wild foods expert, Meredith emphasizes local varieties and traditions, showing you what to look for, when and where to look, and how to gather in a responsible way.

Northeast Foraging is a hardworking guide packed with detailed information and clear photography for the safe identification of more than 120 wild plants. It also features a seasonal guide for foraging year-round and collecting tips for sustainable harvesting.
