Alan Hall is a journalist, author and teacher with a career that spans nearly four decades

Alan Hall is a journalist, author and teacher with a career that spans nearly four decades. He graduated from Cornell University with majors in Journalism and science writing in 1967. He moved to New York to pursue a career but had a weekend house (a run down farm) near Cornell. Because his father was a botanist and naturalist, he took to rural life and learned plant lore. He took a leave of absence and moved to the upstate NY farm and produced much of the manuscript there.

Invaluable in identifying, locating, and preparing wild foods, this guide is as handy in the backyard as on the trail. Describes the appearance, habitats, and culinary uses of numerous North American wild plants and identifies common poisonous plants.

For a book with literally hundreds of wild food recipes, look for the out-of-print Northern Cookbook by Eleanor A. Ellis (Hurtig).

Another superb book with a lot of wild food recipes is Billy Joe Tatum's Wild Foods Cookbook and Field Guide (Workman). It is a excellent resource, and the illustrations are good as well. Among our favourites are Euell Gibbons's Stalking the Wild Asparagus, which came out in the 1960s, The Wild Food Trail Guide by Alan Hall, and The Edible Wild by Berndt Berglund and Clare E. Bolsby. You may also want to peruse the Foxfire series published by Anchor books in the early 1970s.

Many people prefer wild salad greens such as dandelion in the spring before flowering, when they are sweet and tender, but some, like the astringent, tough flavor of the mature plant. Marilyn Kruger in The Wild Flavor, a new lookandcook book, recommends that poke, dande lion and chicory be planted in earth filled flats indoors, for winter greens.

A reliable guide book Becoming a hardcore forager is not difficult. Another basic manual of identification and use of wild plants is The Wild Food Trail Guide by Alan Hall. Sadly, this book is out of print

A reliable guide book Becoming a hardcore forager is not difficult. It takes a fair amount of time to learn the basics of foraging, then a lifetime of honing those basic skills. The first thing to do is to find a reliable guide book to learn which plants are good for what. The classic in the field is Stalking The Wild Asparagus, by the late Euell Gibbons. Sadly, this book is out of print. It might be found in used bookstores, or your library may be able to get you a copy via inter-library loan.

Describes common poisonous plants and details physical appearance, habitats, and culinary uses of numerous North American species
Perfect condition, super fast shipping and the book is just awesome! Based on this book I ordered some seeds for my 'weed' vegetable garden. So easy to read. Ty
Easy read, well organized. Wish it had color photographs rather than black and white drawings.
My son is a culinary food guru and has started preparing wild game. This book was exactly what he needed to get him on his way. Thank you for your promptness!
This book, with it's color plates, make it easy to use in identifying the plants shown. It is now in my field pack, for use on outdoor trecks. It has already proved useful.
I was looking for a book on the subject of wild edibles for my brother as a gift. This was it!
This book is wonderful. It illustrates a wide range of fruits, nuts, and fauna that are edible and commonly available on the trail. It has been an entertaining and educational tool on hiking trips with my sons, and the survivalist in me loves the confidence I dervive from knowing that if I did ever get lost in the woods I wouldn't starve with this book at my side.
I found the book to be a very exceptional source of information for wild edible foods found throughout the United States. The author has given the identifying characteristics, other common names, habitat, season as well as the collection and uses of each plant. The book offers a delightful assortment of easily identifiable, tasty wild foods that would surely interest even the novice forager.
I had this book years ago and found food very easily based on the illustrations and descriptions in the book. The author covers all geographical areas of the US, explains in what environs each plant can be found, the season to find each one, which parts of the plant are edible, and how to prepare for consumption. He also covers poisonous plants, and explains how to tell the difference between edible and poisonous plants that resemble each other.

Highly recommended.
