In addition, she adds practical and decorative ideas that use a number of these same plants.


Drink in the Wild is an attractive and handy guidebook. Full-page, finely worked line drawings of fifty wild plants, together with descriptions and habitats, ensure their identification. The plants are all native to the Pacific Northwest, and many of them grow right across Canada and the United States.

This book is the long-awaited reissue-now greatly enhanced by additional material and accompanying illustrations of Hilary Stewart's popular but long out of print Wild Teas, Coffees & Cordials: 60 Drinks of the Pacific Northwest.

By 1968, Edward Hoagland had successfully published three novels, including the award-winning Cat Man. Looking for material for his next book, he immersed himself in the British Columbia bush for seven weeks, recording his observations and interviews in a series of diaries that became the widely lauded travel book Notes from the Century Before. Early in the Season is an equally riveting account of his return journey. Early in the Season vividly evokes the vast stands of trees, the fast-flowing rivers, the rocky ridgelines of the province’s unspoiled central interior. Against this dramatic backdrop Hoagland profiles an extraordinary cast of characters from the region’s present and past: fearless, larger-than-life trader Skookum Davidson; self-proclaimed ?Chinese-Indian medicine man” Luke Fowler; indomitable ?Omineca River Queen” Agate Alexander; and many others. Poignant, probing, and historically rich, this book offers a window on the people and places that shaped British Columbia and a transporting read for anyone curious about life in one of the world's most majestic wildernesses.

Few people realize how simple ? and safe ? it is to use wild plants to make natural drinks and jams. Drink in the Wild explains how to identify, harvest, dry, and store wild plants for a variety of delicious drinks and spreadables. There are 60 recipes that include Blueberry Cordial, Sorrel Lemonade, Clover Blossom Tea, and Oregon Grape Jelly, as well as tips for locating and identifying wild plants. Stewart’s expert text and charming illustrations make the entire process easy and fun.

In 1968 Edward Hoagland embarked on his second trip to British Columbia. The following year he published the journal from his first trip as Notes from the Century Before, a classic that is still in print today. Early in the Season is the never-before-published account of the second journey, a trip that formed the basis for his fourth novel, Seven Rivers West, and was recently excerpted in the Houghton Mifflin Best American Travel Writing anthology.
An introduction by award-winning writer Stephen Hume and a new epilogue by Hoagland himself reveal why, forty years later, this historically rich window on the people and places that shaped British Columbia is still relevant today.
