Wild Spring Plant Foods: The Foxfire AMericana Library (7)
A handy illustrated guide to the edible plant life available in Appalachia and other temperate areas during the spring. From sassafras to rhubarb, each entry includes instructions on where to find the plant, how to spot it, and the ways it is best eaten, often with recipes.
Foxfire has brought the philosophy of simple living to hundreds of thousands of readers, teaching creative self-sufficiency and preserving the stories, crafts, and customs of Appalachia. Inspiring and practical, this classic series has become an American institution. In July 2016, Vintage Shorts celebrates Foxfire's 50th Anniversary.
