Is Peggy S. Lantz the name of the second book or the second author of the first book?

I met Dick at a Florida Native Plant Society meeting many years ago. He signed my book for me. He was exactly what I expected him to be. A real interesting guy.

Everyone in Florida should know how to get some "swamp cabbage".  I never found it in a book though.

There was a meet and greet with some folks from another forum, survivalistboards.com, and he gave us a walk and talk in the woods. He did a great job, showing us powerful poisons and good eats! Mass starvation will only happen to the uninformed. There are thousands of tons of vegetarian food out in the wild. People in Africa starve sitting next to a river full of fish! Go figure!
This guy (green Deane) has awesome videos to watch. We can feed ourselves in allmost any conditions. Eat the Weeds.

Just got back from the Big Cypress Indian reservation and learned about a ton of different plants and their uses, great area to utilize for local flora and expanding knowledge base.

After 17 years in Fl.   I ate my first coconut ....    Truth picks it up off the ground, cracks it open and says here dig in... MMMM. 

 I thought coconuts came from a plastic bag...  I cracked open one on my own today at the park and had a little snack again. Been kicking those things around for years and never made the connection..  What a valuable discovery for me. I am so excited about this.

Am working up my nerve to try the liquid inside if I haven't dropped dead from some cocogerm by then from what I ate today..    Thanks Truth..

My old stomping grounds were down in Broward County. We used to eat a few cocnuts ourselves, as long as they aren't cracked. If they are the "meat" can be tainted. The "milk" is kinda nasty, like a really thin milk, but I was cautioned to boil it first, like purifying water. Don't really care for coconuts, myself, but it can provide some nourishment. If you are at the other end of the county, in the Everglades, pull up some sawgrass (carefully, they call it sawgrass for a reason) and cut off the pale portion just above the roots and below the "saw blades" of green, and boil it. It's a tasteless cabbage-type food that will help you survive. No fire and water? eat it raw and hold your nose. Also, look for wild sugar cane, very tasty. Dang, I miss it down there sometimes.
