California Foraging

California Foraging: Easy-To-Find Wild Edibles from Coast Strawberries to Wild Spinach - Judith Lowry

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review. No other consideration was offered, expected or received.


I don't live in California, but the whole idea of foraging and living off the land has always been something that interests me. There are so many fruits, vegetables, nuts, etc out there and we, as Americans, only eat a small amount of what is available because we don't know all that our planet provides for us. When I found this book on NetGalley, I quickly grabbed it up.


It is a very interesting book, well written - and it goes well beyond just the wild plants. The author includes lots of information on foraging itself and tips on how to live off of these foods. Each wild plant has a picture to help you easily (and safely) identify the item as well as lots of information on the plant itself and how to eat it.
