    Discovering Wild Plants by Janice Schofield it has good illustrations. It has most edible and medicinal plants for Alaska and the PNW.

    We put up fiddleheads, highbush cranberries, raspberries, huckleberries, and some currants every year. Our first greens of the year are watermelon berry greens and wild geranium leaves. Wild greens take some getting use to but it's worth it.

    And the book "Alaskas wild berrys" but I cant remember the author.

    the woman in the picture is a HARDCORE Berry picker, and with her and 5 daughters helping, we get 50-60 gallons a year.

    Berrys are Alaskas "Fruit".
    The one by UAF Cooperative Extension Service?

    "Alaska's Wild Berries and other Wild Products"

    If so, authored by Sheryl Stanek & Barbara Butcher.

    Licorice root

    Grows on alder trees in Southeast. Folks make a tea with the roots. Just scrape the brown stuff off the roots and use the white pulpy part. Good for what ails you.

    Also, the Haida and Tlingit mix it with Yew tree bark to make a tea used for cancer treatment. Sort of the same chemical compound used in the popular cancer drug taxol.

    Try the
    "Plants that we eat" by Anor Jones, is a most excellent book about the wild plants that are eatn and how to prepare them for storage and dinner , in tradional Northern Alaskan ways.

    I have pix, but nothing really good, they are us eating and such, maby I'll post in the pantry someday.


    Kushimuq (I dont know an english name) that we chop up and eat with Ranch dressing, or boil and eat with salt and butter, as well as boil, drain and freeze for winter.
