Euell Gibbons was one of the few people in this country to devote a considerable part of his life to the adventure of “living off the land.” He sought out wild plants all over North America and made them into delicious dishes. His book includes recipes for vegetable and casserole dishes, breads, cakes, muffins and twenty different pies. He also shows how to make numerous jellies, jams, teas, and wines, and how to sweeten them with wild honey or homemade maple syrup.

Back in the mid to late '70s, I was having a hard time finding ends let alone making them meet. Freshly divorced, living alone, making way too little money, I could either pay rent or eat. I used the cash to pay rent. This book allowed me to feed myself, my two cats and my dog for two years.... in Upstate New York. Buy it, read it, use the knowledge.
