Sonoran Desert Food Plants, written by Charles W. Kane, is specifically designed for the hiker, camper, hunter, or survivalist who is in need of a concise, no-nonsense booklet instructing on the collection, preparation, and utilization of 50 regional edible plants. Essentially: find it; gather it; and eat it. 77 color photos, state-by-state location maps, common and scientific names, preparation and toxicity issues, and concise medicinal and related ethnobotanical uses serve as accents making Sonoran Desert Food Plants a must-have desert-rat resource.
Readers will find Kane's approach to the material refreshingly objective and on-target: no philosophical ramblings and epicurean cookbook recipes; just stripped-down, sensical information on how to best utilize the most common wild desert food plants of the Sonoran region.
