There are lots of books out there about how to accurately and skillfully identify and cook wild foods, but not very many about first-rate, industrial-grade weed eating. And not many that are guaranteed to make the reader laugh -- until now.

This book is for those who admire the notion of being out on a camping trip and amazing everyone else around the campfire by serving up a salad, stew, vegetable, tea, or dessert that comes as a total surprise ?5 and is made out of something found within yelling distance of the tents. It will teach readers more about morels, cattails, and smut (the fungus kind), than they ever thought possible. There''s also information on making wine, jams and jellies, and even gathering and enjoying acorns the Native American way.

The author is not a botanist or a chef, but rather an accomplished and widely acclaimed eater and writer. This walking billboard for gustatory endeavors is full of entertaining stories about identifying, preparing, and eating weeds. Readers will be left with a new eagerness to know more about plants, a desire for cooking them, and a new enthusiasm for wandering around the wilds.
