Juicy, sweet, tart and sometimes sour, wild berries burst with flavour and goodness. They are a delicious treat any time--especially while you are hiking through the forest--and they could save you from starvation if you get lost. Berries have been used for food and medicine for millennia, and early peoples and settlers preserved them for winter use in everything from pemmican to jams and jellies. In this guide to the wild berries of British Columbia, author Fiona Hamersley Chambers provides: * Detailed descriptions of 111 berries and berry-like fruits * Ethnobotanical uses and early Native management of wild berry resources * Range and seasons * Edibility of each berry, from highly edible to not palatable to poisonous * Descriptions of poisonous wild fruits and berries, so you know which ones to avoid * 18 tasty berry recipes including muffins, squares, popsicles and drinks * Full-colour photos and beautiful illustrations to help identify the species.
