What an amazing resource.
Don’t just read this article but bookmark it as well. It might even be worth saving it all into some sort of PDF format you can print in color.
To a guy who loves foraging, this article is a dream come true. You can spend two hours looking at pictures and reading about the different wild edibles available out there.
When it comes to wilderness survival it’s all about knowledge. The more you know the easier it becomes.
This article also features a table of contents that links directly to each individual herb and its profile. There are only a couple of paragraphs on each herb but the color picture tells the story so well.
Some books do a great job explaining the herbs give terrible pictures.
I will always take full-color photos over a lengthy explanation about the Latin name and nicknames of things. This article is perfect for the forager.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
