Serving up 58 calorically/nutritionally important wild edibles for the prepper, plant utilitarian, or curious hiker/camper, Wild Edible Plants of Arizona best fits the reader with a penchant for a handy and information-salient state-specific guide. A discussion of each plant's edible use and preparation is the booklet's primary aim, though space is also given to range and habitat, medicinal uses, cautions, and noteworthy special considerations. Helpful additions include sustenance ratings (low, medium, or high), collection timing and desired plant-part indicators, 58 Arizona-only county-location maps, over 160 color photos, and a 450-listing general index.

About the Author
Endeavoring to clarify the subject of botanical utility, Charles W. Kane embraces sensibility and practicality when writing of edible and medicinal plants. He maintains this messaging for the reader, who deserves a coherent view of the material.

For those of you not interested in ordering from that largest river in South America that rivals the Mississippi and the Nile, but BoF is out of stock at the warehouse, try our new affiliate, Bookshop.org, started by a Columbia University MFA who just wants to help the Indies out a bit while being able to put a meal on the table for himself and others.
You can still buy titles in other formats (hardcover, paperback, audio CDs) with a Books on First gift card as well as buy a Books on First giftcard which we will send especially to that lucky recipient (free postage!).
More than a card.
More value than many other store-bought surprises (except a book!)
Put a 3D paper sculpture in a loved one's hands and see the spontaneous delight.
That's a lovepop.
Based on the Book ...
We are always delighted when someone sees a movie in the book, because now, millions of more people know about the book! It might have been a great film or it might have been a total dud.
But, read the book yourself to see just how good or different the original is!
