Cookbook and Euell Gibbons's three books Stalking the Wild Asparagus,

My progress was slowed only a little by Snowbell, who, despite her “Wild Forever
” leash, habitually became ensnared in blackberry brambles. Finding Asparagus
acutifolius alone officially confirmed our weed excursion as a triumph against

from the 1960s, Stalking the Wild Asparagus, a book about foraging wild food. I
went foraging one fine spring day in 1970 in rural eastern Pennsylvania and
came back to my friend's house with a bag full of wild asparagus and morel
mushrooms (which can often be found growing near wild asparagus). If you
forage for wild asparagus, be careful not to gather it near waste disposal sites, as
asparagus has been shown to take up heavy metals from the soil. WHAT TO
LOOKFOR What you ...

Asparagus and Stalking the Healthful Herbs, became my field guides for a
season. Using the fruit of the ...

epic, which he abandoned in order to write a whimsical romance about a poor ...
