    Let me introduce you to "old reliable"

    My beat to crap copy of

    "Plants of the Pacific Northwest Coast - Washington, Oregon,

    British Columbia and Alaska"

    By Jim Pojar and Andy MacKinnon

    First published 1994 by Lone Pine Publishing

    ISBN 155105-040-4

    Includes extensive information on edibles, poisonous ones, and

    Aboriginal uses of all.

    Nicest of all, it is printed in field guide size, which means

    You can throw it into your ruck when you are banging around in the hills.

    Excellent, excellent volume.
