Mark "Merriwether" Vorderbruggen, Ph.D. has been a forager all his life. Both his parents were children of the Great Depression and their families foraged to get through those terrible times. Thankfully, this knowledge passed on to Merriwether. Knowing how to harvest nature's free food fed him through the poverty years of childhood and on through getting a master's degree in medicinal chemistry and a Ph.D. in physical organic chemistry. For eighteen years he worked as a research chemist in the oil industry using his knowledge of natural products to develop environmentally-friendly replacements for traditional oil field chemicals. More recently he left the petroleum industry to apply his herbalist skills creating ancient herbal supplements for modern issues. However, his evenings and weekends are spent guiding people back to nature's bounty, not only teaching them which plants are edible and/or medicinal but also proselytizing how foraging heals the body, mind, and soul...and prepares them for the zombie apocalypse! His book Idiot's Guide Foraging is one of the most acclaimed wild edibles guides for new and experienced foragers. Since 2008 his website www.foragingtexas.com has been one of the top wild edible plant sites on the internet.
