Revised and Updated.
The Prepper’s Guide to Foraging is not a plant identification guide in the traditional sense. It is instead a guide to using plants to supplement other means of food production and subsistence living. Author David Nash believes that there is not enough land available for to support a large-scale return to the hunter-gatherer lifestyle in the event of a large-scale disaster, but that botanical knowledge does provide an edge to the well prepared.
This book advocates the acquisition of knowledge to allow its reader to safely identify, harvest, and use common North American plants. Wild plants can provide shelter, material, medicine, and food to help the reader extend stored food as well as to create items that may be otherwise unavailable during a crisis.
In this revised edition those interested in the outdoors are provided with time-tested advice on how to safely identify, harvest, and use edible wild plants. Some practical tips include:
- How to identify different parts of plant stems, leaves, flowers, and fruit
- Where to locate and forage edible plants
- Which plants are valuable sources of nutrition and which should be avoided
- How to harvest, store, and prepare plants for eating
- Ways to cook your finds
- How to use plants for tinder, natural dyes, and insect repellents
- And so much more!

This is a substantially edited and revised addition. Frankly, it was supposed to be a completely new book. It has several new plants, and the plants that remained have new recipes and projects.
The medicinal aspects were removed to make room for lots of new information.
