Description


The lush Pacific Northwest coast is home to a multitude of edible and medicinal flora, from marine plants to be harvested in tide pools to edible mushrooms ready to be gleaned from the forest floor. This compact, full-color forager's guide offers clear photography, descriptions, safety tips, and traditional culinary and medicinal uses for wild-growing native and introduced species in the region, including:

- Big leaf maple--the source of a delicious West Coast maple syrup
- Yellow morel mushrooms--a favorite of foragers, but not to be confused with the poisonous false morel
- Sea asparagus--perfect in salad or with seafood
- Evening primrose--an introduced species used to treat a variety of ailments

Practical and user-friendly, Edible and Medicinal Flora of the West Coast is an indispensable guide for beginning and experienced foragers alike.
