We all seek knowledge from time to time. Perhaps we don't seek it enough. We do have to find a balance of knowledge seeking and applying that knowledge. So, where do we start? When do we…Continue

I'll bite Muse. One of the first books I went for when becoming interested in the topic was called, An herbalist's guide to medicinal plants by Crellin. It was nothing like I expected but I still remember it as the one that got the ball rolling. There aren't any recipes, and it has vague drawings of a few plants but what it did have was highly descriptive information about each species and variety, historical uses for food and medicine, and accounts and stories from practitioners of origin. Up until loosing my copy during the shuffle of moving into the house, I would find myself plopping into the nearest chair and opening a page at random even after having read it through three times. It's not local, it has very little in the way of applicable information, but it's still the first I recommend when someone expresses interest. Glowing review, I know.
well since the group is quiet, Ill throw out something and see if that gets the ball rolling.
I dont consider myself a "survivalist" per sae. Although I believe that everyone should be able to utilize whats around them in order to surivive in a situtation that may be life or death.
Part of surviving in the wild is knowing the local plantlife and being able to identify those that are safe for consumption and those that are deadly and being able to use the local fauna for medicinal uses. There are several great herbal books out there that focus on medicinal and edible plants. I think everyone should have at least one of those in their library.,
I am very interested in this group and all I might learn while being in it, however it does not look like there is much activity for this group.... So, I am wondering… Is anyone is still keeping up with it?
