Edible Wild Plants Book resources

I have read many books and resources on wild edibles and many of them have some great information. Some have good pictures and that is really what is needed when Identifying these plants. My frustration with these resources and therefore the inspiration for this site was that the text would often say "eat the plant when young" and then show me the plant when mature. How on earth was I to identify the plant when young if I didn't know what it looked like young!?
The books I offer on this page will help you get good information if you are looking to learn more about wild edibles. I'll find good resources on and link directly to them for you here.
One of the best books and authors on Wild edibles!
Another great book from Samuel Thayer!
Sam Kallas does a fantastic job educating about wild edibles

I recently went through Sergie's book and I feel it is another great resource.
Here is a great book for details about wild herbs and how to use them. (not so much about identification)
Another great book on using herbs. Once again, this is not going to give you specifics on identifying them but great info on using them.
I love Caleb's books and this is another great resource about using herbs.
Another great book from Caleb Warnock. Not about wild edibles but great info about gardening and winter gardening.
