"A clear, concise guide to more than 130 edible and medicinal plants and fungi that grow wild along the west coast of British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest states. The coastal Pacific Northwest of North America is home to a multitude of edible and medicinal plant species, marine plants, and edible mushrooms. This compact, full-colour forager's guide offers clear photography, descriptions, safety tips and warnings, and traditional culinary and medicinal uses for every type of wild-growing flora species in the region, including: Bigleaf Maple--used to make a delicious west-coast maple syrup; Yellow Morel Mushroom--a favourite of foragers but not to be confused with the false morel, which is poisonous; Sea Asparagus--perfect in a salad or as an accompaniment to seafood; and Evening Primrose--an introduced species to the region, used to treat a variety of ailments. Practical, user-friendly, and safe, Edible and Medicinal Flora of the West Coast is an indispensable guide for beginner and experienced foragers alike"-- Provided by publisher.
