Does anyone know of a good book or internet page about plants that can be eaten and what they are good for? I have had trouble finding anything and I would like to see what everyone thought. Thanks.

Peterson's feild guides are good, and you can go to Amazon for a host of other books on wild edibles. I caution you though, get training from a local expert. There are many plants that look similar to edibles that can make you VERY sick. And again, what we call one thing here, you might call something completely different there.

Thanks, I'll try to do some more looking. Not a big fan of dying after eating some random plant. I Appreciate it.
