Wild Summer and Fall Plant Foods: The Foxfire Americana Library (8)
A handy illustrated guide to the edible plant life available in Appalachia and surrounding areas during the summer and fall seasons. From berries to herbs perfect for teas and tonics, each entry includes information on where to find the plant, how to spot it, and the best ways to eat it, 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.
