Foraging the Mountain West.


Foraging the Mountain West
Gourmet Edible Plants, Mushrooms, and Meat
By Thomas J. Elpel and Kris Reed

      There's food in them thar hills! There is also food in the valleys, meadows, swamps, and all around town, too... maybe even in your own backyard. Foraging the Mountain West is a guide to harvesting and celebrating nature's abundance. Reach out and explore the world with your taste buds. Discover new delights you will never find at the store. Connect with nature on a deeper level by meeting, greeting, and eating the plants, fungi, and creatures that share the neighborhood. Become a little more self-sufficient, and a lot more aware.

      Foraging the Mountain West is a hands-on manual for identifying, harvesting, and preparing real food. It is written for the backpacker who would rather bring more knowledge and fewer provisions into the wilderness. It is intended for the happy homemaker who wants to eat well and spend less. It is ideal for the creative chef who wants to explore new ingredients and impress diners with novel dishes.

      The authors brought together years of experience and fun to show you, the prospective forager, what, when, where, why, and how to gather wild and feral plants, mushrooms, and neglected wayside crops. In addition, this is a guide for successful fishing without a pole, hunting without weapons, and even shopping without money. This book will help you fill your freezer and satiate your appetite.

      Foraging the Mountain West will help you dream in winter, cleanse in spring, forage in summer, and gorge in fall. The book includes more than 600 vivid color photos detailing every essential aspect of foraging. This guide is not meant to sit on your coffee table. It is meant to start a revolution!

      Field guide format: 6 x 9 inches. 340 pages. Color. ISBN: 978-1-892784-36-0. $30.


Foraging the Mountain West.

Hi Tom,

      I've been reading and using your books and websites for a number of years now. I love the clear, engaging, down-home, respectful, non-egotistical, humorous way you connect with the reader. So glad I'm finally telling you how grateful I am for what you have done and are doing.

     A few weeks ago extended family from California and Colorado sat around for a few hours in our home reading aloud sections of Foraging the Mountain West. We couldn't put it down! That was a highlight of our visit.

In great appreciation,

Pam S.
