Overview
In a situation where survival is at stake, plants can provide crucial food and medicine.

Originally intended for Army use, this book serves as a survival aid for civilians as well. Anyone interested in the outdoors, botany, or even in unusual sources of nutrition will find this an indispensable resource.
