Regional paperback field guides are on the way!

The field guides pick up where the online notes leave off, and provide in-depth coverage of edible species along with amazing photography and information on how to find, collect, and prepare wild edibles for specific regions. The paperback field guides are free for the book's photo contributors and are available for sale to any fan of this website through and If you are interested in a guidebook for your province or state, drop me an email and mention what region you're in, as well as which topic(s) you are interested in (mushrooms, berries, seashore edibles, plants, or all the above). I'll send you a notification when the guidebook for your area is ready, and you'll be able to check out the PDF sample and view screenshots online.

The printed guides cover many more species in more detail than the online guides, including detailed information on how to identify each species with confidence. Many photos in the books are contributed by nature and foraging enthusasts. Photo contributions are always welcome, so if you have a photo that you think would benefit the guide for your region, drop me an email! My goal is to create the hands-down best regional guidebooks for foragers, hikers, and nature enthusuants -- guides that are worth their weight in a backpack!
