Trade paperback format.  Highly recommended.  I grew up with this book on my parents' bookshelves, along with Euell Gibbons' other guides.  Every forager should have this on their shelf too!

Euell Gibbons tells how to forage for wild food in every coastal area of North America. Filled with accurate line drawings to aid in identifying crabs, mussels, clams and numerous other shellfish, the book also abounds in recipes and cooking tips all the way from varieties of bouillabaisse, chowders and clambakes to simple Epicurean treats such as boiled periwinkles dipped in melted butter.
This foraging and cooking classic was first published in 1964 and has continued to be one of America's most appreciated works on the subject of seafood. As a young man, Euell Gibbons kept his family alive during the Dust-Bowl era by gathering wild foods. In later years he foraged for seafood all over the coastlines of North America and even Hawaii. He drew on his extensive experience and research to write his "Stalking" series, books which have entered the American lexicon and which remain the starting point for serious foragers.
