The Prepper’s Guide to Foraging

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.

Available on Amazon as:

Paperback, and on Kindle

Author Note

This Second addition is almost an entirely new book.  To be honest, the revision was actually supposed to be a completely new title.

Also I was lucky to get Todd Walker, aka the Survival Sherpa to write the introduction.  He is an experienced survivalist that runs several websites and Facebook groups dedicated to wilderness survival and bushcraft.
