Can anyone recommend a book on edible plants that grow in the wild? Preferably plants that grow in S California. Thank You.

You should check Peters guides for Edibles & Poisonous plants.
The first step in wild edibles is knowing what is poisonous raw & what can be cooked & eaten safely.
Example: Nightshade plants, leaves & stems are poisonous.
Tomatoes,white potatoes,sweet & hot peppers,egg plants are all in the Nightshade family.
As many of you know these plant fruits are safe to eat, well some of the hot peppers are not "safe", but not poisonous.
