Foraging Texas is a field guide and reference for people who want to learn about wild edible plants across the state of Texas. It covers edible plants native or naturalized in the lone star state and describes wild-harvesting basics, ethics, identification, distribution, harvesting methods, recipes, and historical uses. The guide is easy for beginners to use. It's primarily organized by plant type (i.e., tree, shrub, herb) and secondarily by plant family (i.e., sunflower family, carrot family, etc.) and has detailed photos to aid in identification. The guide is also a useful reference for more experienced foragers. Although this guide focuses on the edible plants of Texas, because the state of Texas covers such a wide variety of ecoregions and habitats, Foraging Texas is also useful in neighboring states like Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and beyond.
