Wild Edible Plants & Mushrooms, Trees & Field Guides

Here are all our favorite books about wild edible plants and mushrooms, as well as field guides and identification guides we wouldn’t be without. Remember, apps are fun, but ALWAYS back it up with a proper Field Guide ID from AT LEAST 2 (preferably 3) sources!
