    The link below has a list of different books based on what you’re foraging for, as well as book reviews.  I also recommend checking your local Goodwills, I found an Army guide to survival that has a wealth of information about foraging and is incredibly easy to understand.

    The book “Wild Food: Foraging for Food in the Wild” is about how to find, identify, and cook multiple kinds of wild foods.  “Foraging New England: Finding, Identifying, and Preparing Edible Wild Foods and Medicinal Plants from Maine to Connecticut” is a guide to what is edible in the northeast region of the US.  The second link below has an extensive list of books involving foraging for food in the wild.

    There are a lot of books on foraging! If you are planning on starting out as a beginner forager, it is probably a good idea to get a book with lots of good photographs or illustrations, so as to prevent mistaking one plant for another. An example is The Forager’s Harvest by Samuel Thayer. He gives good descriptions of each plant, in addition to photographs. He also includes a harvest calendar, a bibliography for further reading, and preparation instructions. Another title to check out is Pacific Feast by Jennifer Hahn, which not only provides field notes and recipes but also has a strong conservation and sustainability focus. Whichever book you choose, it is probably a good idea to get one that focuses on your geographic region so that you’re getting the most detail information about local plants.
