Post by: Highwayman on September 28, 2008, 11:19:56 AM
Can anyone recommend good reference books for identifying edible plants that can be found in the NW of USA?

Wild Harvest: Edible Plants of the Pacific Northwest by Terry Domico

This is the only book I know of that specifically deals with edible plants in the North West.  You can get a copy of something like The Forager's Harvest but it will be less useful.

Also look for local survival/outdoor schools.  They may teach edible plant courses.  Check with your local Park Service.  Ours does a free Edible Plants nature walk.  Your local Extension Office may have additional information as well.
