  • 2 Must Have Books

    Since I want to work on my wild edibles I was told to pick up these two books and let me tell you they are AWESOME and well worth the purchase. I will mention that the author (Samuel Thayer) is from my general area so people in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Iowa and Illinois will greatly benefit from them. To be honest though I would have even purchased them if I lived in Texas!

    Very good information folks and trust me, if something isn't worth buying I will be the first to tell you. I don't get any kickbacks from any gear I purchase.

                        What are the book titles? I have one put out by the Missouri Conservation Department, but it only has black and white drawings, Wild Edibles of Missouri. It's OK, but I would really like to have a few more with better plant descriptions. Thanks.
