As a compendium of the state’s most useful and common forages, Wild Edible Plants of Kansas is best suited for the prepper or outdoor enthusiast in search of a to-the-point introduction to the field. Visually-appealing and light-weight (booklet format), consider this publication a kind of CliffNotes: no fluff, just the facts.

A discussion of each plant’s edible use and preparation is the publication’s primary aim, though if applicable, space is also given to range and habitat, medicinal uses, cautions, and noteworthy special considerations. Helpful additions include sustenance ratings (low, medium, or high), collection timing and desired plant-part indicators, county-by-county map-image, over 160 color photos, and a general index.
