Pacific Northwest Foraging: 120 Wild and Flavorful Edibles from Alaska Blueberries to Wild Hazelnuts

By Douglas Deur

Doug Deur invites us to discover the taste and history of the Northwest.

Spencer B. Beebe, author of Cache and founder of Ecotrust

The Pacific Northwest is a veritable feast for foragers. The forests, meadows, stream banks, and even the weedy margins of neighborhoods are home to a surprising number of deliciously edible wild plants. Douglas Deur, a lifetime Northwest forager, shares his insights and experiences, showing you what to look for, when and where to look, and how to gather in a responsible way.

Pacific Northwest 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. It is applicable to Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and southeast Alaska.
