Description
Nothing is more important for the outdoorsman than being prepared to survive in the wild, and the ability to recognize edible plants is an indispensable way to do so.  When survival is the chief objective, often plants are one's best (and only) source of nutrition and medicine.  The key is being familiar with their botanical structure, where to find them, and which will provide the most sustenance.  Equally as important is knowing which are potentially poisonous or fatal if consumed. 

Originally created for use by U.S. Army personnel, The Complete Guide to Edible Wild Plants is a full-color reference to plants both common and rare, from purslane to the prickly pear.  Inside are details on how to locate, identify, and prepare edible wild plants, as well as information on their specific nutritional benefits and other handy uses.  This guide also includes a section on which plants to avoid and how to test for edibility. 

A no-nonsense survival aid, this book is an essential guide for serious adventurers and the armchair botanist alike.

      Color pictures with good descriptions make a helpful handbook to have. There is food available if you know where to look. I have already found multiple edible plants growing everywhere.

        Comments about InfoWars 'The Complete Guide To Edible Wild Plants':

        I use the book to identify specific wild plants in the back yard and the forest. This information helps me to love GOD's creation even more. I now know the famiy which the plants come from. The warning is an added medical prevention. Graphics are great. Will be recommending this book to others.

            Comments about InfoWars 'The Complete Guide To Edible Wild Plants':

            This book is much better than most edible plant id books because the entire book is full page color pictures! Other books I've found on the subject have an insert of color pics in the middle and mostly black and white. Color is very important in plant id to make certain you've got the correct one. Another high quality product!
