The Neighborhood Forager By Robert K. Henderson

The Neighborhood Forager by Robert K. Henderson

Sue said: The Neighborhood Forager takes us on a walk along the streets of a common Pacific Northwest neighborhood. The plants are frequent visitors to my own table and medicine chest because I live in the Willamette Valley, which shares a bioregion with Seattle, Robert Henderson's home. This book should be an inspiration to wild foragers in other regions to write similiar guides for their areas. I would relish a book that featured Paw Paw pie or Bog Craneberry tart. The recipes Henderson suggests have, so far, been tasty and clearly written. I look forward to trying more of them. His knowledge of herbal medicine is great for a beginner but uninspiring for the seasoned herbalist. Henderson gives ample cautions on proper identification of plants, and I wouldn't feel confident trying a new plant's edibility with just his book in hand. The Neighborhood Forager is a perfect companion text for a wild-crafter who is eager to try new uses for old friends.
