Bonnie Marie Morris is an avid wild food forager and herbalist who has lived in the Tennessee Appalachian Mountains for over 20 years. Her interest in wild food began at a very early age when listening to her father talk about the wild greens that his family used to eat when he was a child. She has taught classes in wild herb identification, wilderness survival, and enjoys life living on a mountain in East Tennessee. At home you can usually find her in the kitchen cooking up a new wild food recipe to try out on her friends, or in the woods hunting, fishing and exploring new and exciting places in the surrounding forest. Friends fondly call her Bearcat because they say she's as wild as the woods she explores. Alan Hall is a talented cook and naturalist. He is the author of The Wild Food Trailguide, a guide to edible plants. Hall grew up at the Northern end of Appalachia and has long had an interest in the mountains. Over the years, he has eaten and learned to cook the simple but unique food of the mountain people from New York to the Deep South. He has collected many recipes. Because his father was a botanist and naturalist, he took to rural life and learned plant lore. Now retired from a career as a journalist, today Hall's interests include Appalachia, cooking with fresh ingredients, and sustainable living.
