9780143019220: A Field Guide to the Native Edible Plants of New Zealand,

A go-to, illustrated field guide of edible native New Zealand plants, including a section on poisonous plants. In this useful and attractive book, over 190 trees, shrubs, herbs, ferns, mushrooms, lichens and seaweeds are described in detail with information on which part is edible and when, how plants have been utilised (particularly by Maori), their nutritional value, and where they can be found. In a separate section, Andrew Crowe also describes important poisonous plants that are native to New Zealand or are likely to be confused with the edible plants. Illustrated with line drawings and colour photographs, this informative book will be of interest to trampers, botanists and all who appreciate New Zealand's native flora.

From the Author:

This book was inspired by a ten-day survival experiment I undertook in the early 1970s. While researching, illustrating and writing it, I was often asked, 'Who would be interested?' Remarkably, it has since gone into 15 printings with four different publishers and this in a country - New Zealand - with only 4 million inhabitants. It took three years to write, living in a cave for part of that time and written originally by hand. Like all my books, it was 'a labour of love' and funded by the luxury of knowing how to live on nothing. If you bought or read the book, thank you!

About the Author:
