25 easily identified plants common to the United States are described and illustrated with notations for their common usage. Each plant described in this book comes with one recipe for food as well as detailed instructions for at least one alternative use. Additional instructions for the preparation of standard medicinal items like tinctures, creams, and infusions are included, as well as botanical guides to help identify other plants. Special emphasis has been added for North American trees.

It is instead a guide to using plants to supplement other means of food production and subsistence living. Author David Nash believes that there is not enough land available to support a large-scale return to the hunter-gatherer lifestyle in the event of a large-scale disaster, but that botanical knowledge does provide an edge to the well prepared.
