Review

“Season-by-season guide to identification, harvest, and preparation of more than 200 common edible plants to be found in the wild . . .  Hundreds of edible species are included . . .  [This] handy paperback guide includes jelly, jam, and pie recipes, a seasonal key to plants, [and a] chart listing nutritional contents.”—Booklist

“Beautiful color photographs . . . temptingly arranged.”—The Library Letter

This is an easy to understand book guide on edible plants with full color pictures. It has information on seasons and shows what region of the United States the plants are likely to be found. It also has recipes and other information plus on poisonous plants and look alikes. I used an earlier addition of this feild guide and found it very useful in derermining edible plants. I found food I would have likely not eaten without this reference. Its great for backwoods camping and backpacking or even desert hiking. No info on mushrooms. And includes nutbearing trees. – Amazon Review
