Came across this thread because I'm looking for a similar type book.

Hard to say if I'm eastern or western, although probably more eastern.

Thanks in advance, straight razor.

Default Dave and wild edibles

Dave Canterburry is from Jackson Oh He has A bunch of youtube videos that is pretty useful i think his channel is called pathfinderschoollc. He has a play list of edible and medicinal plants and trees. Also "Edible Wild Plants - wild foods from dirt to plate" by John Kallas Phd is pretty good too. Hope this helps

Let me know.

Start with these:

Paw-paws.
Mulberries.
Elderberries.
Blackberries/gooseberries/raspberries/grapes.
Persimmons.
Cherries.
Apples (crab and others).
Sassafrass.
Stinging nettles.
Cattails.
Spring beauties.
Dandelions.
Wild ginger/wild anise.
Toothwort.
Poke.
Asparagus.
Hickory/walnut/oak/beechnut/hazelnut.
Staghorn sumac.
Jewelweed.
Rosehips.
Amaranth.
Jerusalem artichokes.
Purslane (Winter too).
Rock tripe (winter too).
Chickweed.
Mayapples.
Lambs quarters.
Dock.
Bouncing Bet (for soap).

This is just scratching the surface. Let me know if you need any more help. I have personally used every one of these plants and much more. By the time your done, you can write your OWN field guide!

Good luck.

WV here and I just purchased a couple books. One was Edible Wild Plants: Wild Foods From Dirt To Plate by John Kallas. It had awesome reviews and seems to pertain to most of the Eastern US. It's a small guide, but supposedly the best out there. The other one was a medicinal plant guide: Medicinal Plants, Trees & Shrubs of Appalachia by Bill Church. I'll let you know how these two work out. Also, I've heard that Nature's Garden: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants by Samuel Thayer is a good reference book. I'm planning on getting it shortly.
