  • I'm looking for a field guide, survival handbook or otherwise that details the identification and preparation of wild plant life. Anybody have any recommendations? It can be part of a larger book, if that book contains a nice detailed section on the subject.

'The Foragers Harvest' by Samuel Thayer has always steered me right. Its not really oriented towards "survivalist" foraging, but has a lot of great info on wild plants which can be readily found, as well as how they can be properly identified and prepped for eating.

Plants are region specific. What geographical area do you have in mind?

I can recommend Edible Wild Plants, by John Kallas. John teaches outdoor workshops around the country, but is based in Portland, Oregon. I have take some of the workshops and they are very informative and precise about the safety of the plant. Highly recommend the book and his classes, through Wild Food Adventures.com

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
