    I've seen the Mark Suter edible book, any idea how it compares? Have you found it useful for where you live and run around?

    I haven't looked at the Mark Suter book so I can't speak to comparison. I will say that the thing I like about this book is that it shows a little map on each page and shows where that particular plant grows. So its really easy to determine if the plant you are looking at is even in your area.

    I haven't gone out and tried any of the edibles yet, but plan to. Just been reading through. It tells you what part of the plant is edible, how to best prepare it, if there are any cautions, and also medical uses.

    Go down to post #11 in that thread, there's a link to a site called speedhook. The Eastern US ones are on backorder at the moment but they seem to still be fulfilling orders for the Western US cards. I had ordered one of each, the Western ones arrived last week with some freebies as an apology for the Eastern ones being on backorder. The freebies were a couple more decks, one on survival and the other on knots. Someone posted a pic of them later on in the thread.

    Best resource for Texas

    Merriwether is a great guy, very knowledgeable.

    Mark Suter's book is also a good resource.

    I like Meriwether's site real helpful and if you send him pictures he will help to id the plant. He was hit by a car while bicycling years ago, but last time I talked to him he is better. Interesting that he has a bandana now.

    GOD Bless you and your families
