    Default Wild Edibles

    Can someone point me towards a book or group outing that helps to identify Alaska's wild edible plants? If it is a book color photos and a focus on alaska are important to me.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    If you go to the book stores and the forest service book shops you can find some great ones. There was one, I will have to find out again for myself too, that concentrated only on the interior plants and berries. It was great because it identified the look-alikes and told you symptoms for them all. That is really important because we do have a few look-alikes, like wild celery that can be deadly. I will try to find out the name for you and post back later!

    I ordered this yesterday. Thanks for the tip.

    southeastgirl, when you find the title to that book let me know.

    I think the one I liked the most is Wild, Edible and Poisonous Plants of Alaska.
