Wild Berries of Washington and Oregon

Wild Berries of Washington and Oregon
Juicy, sweet, tart and sometimes sour, wild berries burst with flavor and goodness. They are a delicious treat for hikers, or to pick and enjoy later. They could even save you from starvation if you get lost. Berries have been used for food and medicine for millennia, and early peoples and settlers preserved them for winter use in everything from pemmican to jams and jellies. In this new guide to the wild berries of Washington and Oregon, co-authors T. Abe Lloyd and Fiona Hamersley Chambers provide:

  • Detailed descriptions of over 200 berries and berry-like fruits
  • Ranges and seasons
  • Full-color photos and beautiful illustrations to help identify the species.
  • Ethnobotanical and early Native American uses and management of wild berry resources
  • Edibility of each berry, from highly edible to not palatable to poisonous
  • Descriptions of poisonous wild fruits and berries, so you know which ones to avoid
  • Twenty tasty berry recipes including muffins, squares, popsicles and drinks

    You may have forgotten what a “real” berry tastes like, but take this book with you on your next hike and you’ll be able to enjoy a cornucopia of freshness.
