Roots: an Underground Botany and Forager's Guide by Douglas B. Elliott

The drawings of the edible roots in this book are beautifully detailed, but only small drawings are available of the plant portion that grows above ground. Photographs of the entire plant would be much more useful, and while many of the plants described might exist in the western regions of North America, the author is clearly much more familiar with the eastern half of the continent, as this constitutes almost the entirety of his regional references.
