The coastal Pacific Northwest of North America is home to a multitude of edible and medicinal plant species, marine plants, and edible mushrooms. This compact, full-colour forager’s guide offers clear photography, descriptions, safety tips and warnings, and traditional culinary and medicinal uses for every type of wild-growing flora species in the region, including: Bigleaf Maple—used to make a delicious west-coast maple syrup; Yellow Morel Mushroom—a favourite of foragers but not to be confused with the false morel, which is poisonous; Sea Asparagus—perfect in a salad or as an accompaniment to seafood; and Evening Primrose—an introduced species to the region, used to treat a variety of ailments.
