Description - Wild Berries of the West by Betty B Derig

Organized alphabetically by common family name, the plant descriptions tell you how to identify more than 150 fruits and berries that grow throughout the western United States. Plant writeups discuss how Native Americans and pioneers used the plants for food, medicine, and crafts, and how you can grow the plants in your own backyard. The authors include more than 50 of their favorite recipes--from juniper berry chicken and elderberry ham to groundcherry chutney and lingonberry coffee cake. This field guide, filled with 185 color photographs of flowering plants and ripe fruits, is a must for berry lovers, adventurous cooks, amateur botanists, native-plant gardeners, and students of Native American lore.
