Old Book, New to me

Post by NeckRed Gringo » Mon Aug 14, 2017 4:31 pm

Good afternoon fellow Woods Dwellers,
I picked up a Book called Wild Edible Plants Of Texas by Charles W. Kane. Read all of it and recognized a few plants i had no idea were even on the menu. It only runs 10 bucks at barns and nobles and i think it is a solid read. As we all know Texas is huge and alot of plants are specific to different regions within it. I dont know if someone has already posted about this book but oh well, great info. I think the more you know the better off you are and pulling from multiple sources of information is not only playing it safe but smart at the same time. Its 60 plants and he hand picked ones that grow abundant and yield some good nourishment, but I find the seasons are mostly spring and summer with a couple being in the fall. Let me know if you know the book and what you think is another good one. Thanks,
