Recommended to Wendy by: iridescentdragons@yahoo.com
This is a WONDERFUL guide for people who want a personable guide to explain a selection of approximately 75 of the best plants for foraging in the New England region (Maine to Connecticut). It does not read like a dictionary, it is a beautifully written field guide with plenty of info, but also plenty of anecdotes and opinions. My life has been greatly enriched by tasting new favorites like peppergrass and lambs quarters. No longer are the weeds in my neighborhood just weeds... Many thanks to ...more

A fun book to read, even if you have no intention of eating things you find on your woodland walks. Seymour's style is engaging and fun; you get the sense of sitting with an old-time storyteller as you read, and his enthusiasm is contagious. My goal for the next week is to find and eat one new wild plant a day. Going gathering young milkweed pods later today.

Enjoyed this - and even ate some foraged food that I learned about here! Hard to get over the sense of "eating weeds," but good to know about if I ever needed it.

I got this out of the library, but I would only forage if I had a copy of this IN HAND so I could be sure that I had the right plant (compare the picture).

Not very useful to me at all because it does not have pictures for the entries. :( In the middle of the book there are a bunch of pictures but it's really not useful unless there are pictures along with EACH entry.

Awesome foraging book

I was interested in doing outdoor things with my grandson and started buying books on foraging food. This is the best book so far. The photos are crisp, followed with season, habitat and whether the plant is medicinal or consumption.
