About this product
Synopsis
Discusses edible plant species, including etymology, location, uses of each part, history of the uses, medicinal uses, and possible toxicity. The Encyclopedia of Edible Plants of North America is the only book that lists all edible species - about 4,000 plants - on the vast North American continent that have been used as food by humans; contains a comprehensive account of each species, including etymology, geographical location, uses of each part, history of the uses, composition, medicinal uses, possible toxicity, endangered species and much, much more; is based on first-hand "grazing" research conducted over ten years on this continent by eminent European enthobotanist Francois Couplan, Ph.D.; includes traditional Native American cooking techniques and uses for plants which the author recorded while living with various tribes around the country; and reflects an unusual blend of the author's 35 years of personal experience with edible plants and his highly sophisticated scientific expertise. By relating to the senses and to the pleasure of discovering amazing new tastes and flavors, the book encourages the reader to develop new relationships with nature.
