Let's Play Some Cards!
This deck from Ready Hour features 48 different edible plants found in the North American wilderness. The Ready Hour Edible Wild Foods Playing Cards deck is full of valuable, survival information. Sometimes, you have to forage off the land for food!
Each edible plant is shown in a full-color photograph for easy identification. A map identifies the geographic areas where the plant grows in the wild. The card face explains warnings, characteristics, uses, plant parts, aliases and special cooking hints.
