Eat Free for Life on One Acre of Land! — Yes, you read that right. Skeptical? The Author of this book did it for years. Author Linda Runyon was raised during summers at Nirvana Lodge, a tourist camp owned by her grandparents. As an adult, returning to Indian Lake from the Jersey shore seemed the natural thing to do. Homesteading in the Adirondack Mountains without modern conveniences, seeking wild foods, cooking outdoors & learning basic Native American ways became the beginning of “A SURVIVAL ACRE.” There are literally hundreds of plants to choose from when selecting food sources. However, the 50 Survival foods listed here seem to be the most prevalent, and are found naturally throughout the Adirondacks, the country & the world. A few are

    How to use Wild Foods anywhere, any time. Goodbye Doomsday!, December 2, 1997
    By A Customer
    This review is from: A Survival Acre: 50 Worldwide Wild Foods & Medicines (Paperback)

    The big problem with cooking with wild foods is that they are seasonal, and we eat all year long. The solution is to be found in this book. It shows how to preserve edible wild foods no matter where you live. This is one of the most empowering books I have ever read. There is no doomsday. Look down and eat up! Good companion to her Lawn Food Cook Book.

    Good basic book. She delivers., January 12, 1999

    This was a text in a Stone Age Nomadics course I took. She is right on the money. Tom Brown’s Field Guide to edible plants is longer, however, hers is the best book of its type.

    This review is from: A Survival Acre: 50 Worldwide Wild Foods & Medicines (Paperback)

    I found this book to be of little to no value.
    The author neglects to mention uses of several of the plants in her book. For example, the author makes no mention of using burdock or Queen Anne’s lace for there roots. The roots of burdock are a delicacy in Japan.
    Additionally,wood sorrel should come with a warning to avoid consuming large amounts. The oxalic acid in wood sorrel can cause kidney stones in certain people.
    The author give no tips on identifying the plants referenced. Even more disturbing is the use of plants that have poionous copy cat plants, and the user is not warned individually about these plants. (Water Hemlock and Queen Anne’s Lace, balsam and yew).
    (…). And if you are going
    to eat the weeds, there are certainly resources with better content, and safety warnings than this book contains.
