I have that book in my library as well.

It's definitely a good idea to become familiar with plants in your region.  Many times there are variations of plants that may or may not be edible, it's a good idea to get a working knowledge of these plants, not just a familiarity.

Could you tell me the name of that book, I'm trying to figure out if it's the same one I have.


Peterson's Guide series has a number of field guides to plants (and animals).
Edible plants, trees, shrubs and other woody plants.

Fairly inexpensive and a wealth of knowledge.
