Considering the areas that people go hiking are normally out of service, there is not as very handy way to look up whether a plant is toxic or not. SO I am in the market for a great author that has published a book of the do's and dont's of what plants to eat.

Or even a website that I can print out sheets. Unfortunately, I didn't have anyone in my family to teach us about edible plants, so I am kind of holding on by the straps of my pants! Hopefully, this forum can help me read up on my plants!

Thank you!

Better to learn gradually those that you can eat and rest to avoid.
To write much about poisonous plants is not so good. We never know for what someone needs this knowlege.
Thare are many sites. You can also start form this:
http://www.artofmanliness.com/2010/1...edible-plants/

and this book looks ok, google it and chack Amazon
"Edible Wild Plants: A North American Field GuidePaperback"
by Thomas Elias(Author), Peter Dykeman(Author)

That website was amazing by the way, photos, and ways to test plants in the case they may be poisonous! Thank you!

Plantago has healing properties. Used for centuries.

It's a difficult read (for me, anyways), but here's a scientific paper on it.

Arrow Website "Foraging Texas" on edible plants

I want to share a very informative website I stumbled across recently.
Merriwether's Guide to Edible Wild Plants of Texas and the Southwest.
http://www.foragingtexas.com/

There is Lots of good information & photos and describing what parts you can eat and the parts to avoid, their growing regions, etc.

Enjoy!

Actually, there are several smartphone apps usable offline with good information on plants and many other aspects of hiking, camping, and survival in the field. This includes quality pictures and even some videos on some subjects. With a couple of these for cross reference it is fairly easy to ID things.

The SAS Survival Manual by John 'Lofty' Wiseman is one of the best.

Just my opinion.

I'd also be careful and note what things not to mix in a edible manner

Besides the various Prep Manuals that have plants in them, here are two Android apps I use:

Edible and Medicinal Plants
iMushroom Guide


Kindle Books (I got them all free at one time or another):
Edible Plants For Preppers
Foraging - A Beginner's Guide to Wild Edible and Medicinal Plants
Foraging - A complete Guide on Foraging Wild Edible Plants and Medicinal Herbs
Foraging: A Guide to Edible Plants: Discover How to Survive with Foraging
Foraging: Everything You Need to Know on Foraging Wild Edible Plants
Foraging: Foraging Wild Edible Plants: Foraging & Cooking Edible Wild Plants
Survival Guide Edible Plants. How to Survive by Foraging for Edible Plants
Foraging Wild Edible Plants: The Essential Novices Guide to Foraging Wild Edible
Herbs to Know 2: Wild Medicinal & Edible Plants
Wild Forage Cookbook: Wild Game recipes, Wood Oven Cooking

Hope this helps.

Just my opinion.

Medical books..

Personally I would start looking at courses covering basic 1st aid with a surgery component for basic stitching, I would consider wasting money into getting the hubby, wife and kids taught.. Note see if they have an artery repair module...

This is an old thread but I'll play...

This has been my go-to site for my foraging needs here in Florida:

http://www.eattheweeds.com

I have followed Dean around the woods here 4 times this year and shared this experience with 5 different people and everyone enjoyed them selves.
Every time I go I learn a little more, there is a lot to learn, can't wait to go again.
