This is not my favorite book on wild edibles, but it definitely has a place on my shelves as a helpful alternate. Some things you have to take with a grain of salt.

This is an excellent practical guide to foraging and plant identification, just like it says. The text is clear, the photos are full color, plus lots of tips, advice, and recipes.

I might pick those up too.

I enjoyed the information presented to me in this book. It's definitely going to be packed up in my camping gear, because since I live in the city, many of the items it shows don't really pertain to anything readily accessible to my location. I am wanting to try out many of the recipes in the book, because I'm an avid cook and love to experiment in my kitchen, so I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye out for the items listed that are not readily available in the grocery stores. The book was ...more

Since reading thus book, I can not stop staring at the ground! This book has broadened my diet. I am so excited for spring. If you are interested in preparedness, gardening or natural health, this book will tickle your fancy. I was inspired by the stories Sergei shared in the book. I feel he described plants very well. The pictures were detailed enough that I feel confident that I can identify the edible plants with confidence. This book has launched me into a new hobby.
