Very useful book.

Very useful book. I am a Survival Specialist and I LOVE these books. Every time I move or travel to a new location I buy the book that is associated with the area I am in. The pictures and descriptions are great and very informative. I also enjoy how the book described all the different uses, from medicinal to using the plant as a food source. Very easy to use. It's already helped me identify several different plants while on my walks.

I found this book to be very accurate

This is an outstanding field guide! This book is my go to guide in the field. FULL of info and easy to understand plain simple language. Easy to understand symbols to state if its edible or not etc. It says Easter and Central North America but many of these plants are found all over America.
I found this book to be very accurate, as well as entertaining.

I enjoyed looking up plants that I have seen around my house and in the woods.

The descriptions are detailed, and the glossary is really easy to use.

Identifying Medicinal Plants

I'm a little obsessed at identifying plants, and so I don't go anywhere without this book. Especially hiking or walking. I consider it the "bible" of this subject. True there are a lot of pictures crammed into it, and they are mostly line drawings. But it's comprehensive. I first identify plants using this book, THEN go to other sources (including online) for more information on that plant, including how to prepare/eat it/ or use it for medicinal purposes.

What a wonderful audible book on foraging !

What a wonderful book! I saw the movie first on FMTV and ordered the book as soon as it finished. I knew there are lots of edible 'weeds' but didn't want to attempt to forage until I was absolutely sure of non-toxicity. book is informative, knowledgeable and very cute! The book is very well illustrated, with lots of clear photographs of the plants. which I enjoy as a tactile person. It has lots of clear written information, a comprehensive glossary, and index, and nice drawings of leaf types. I love the fact that he describes what the flower, the stem the leaves and the roots look like for each plant, even the smell. It gives you more than one haracteristic of the plant to check out, which is important.

If You’re Outside, This Book Should be with You!



Love this book, may be the best book I’ve seen for identification. The photos are clear and the information is concise and pertinent. One of the best features is in the tree identification-not only does the author include photos of leaves, flowers and berries but very detailed photos of the bark. Information is included on how to prepare each of the foraged foods.

This is a great book that you can put on a phone

This is a great book that you can put on a phone and use the color photos to ID in the field. I am going to keep the rating at five but would have preferred if they replaced the recipes with more plant IDs.

Best foraging book ever......

This is my favorite book on foraging wild foods, and I've had *many*. The book surprised me when I got it because it was thinner than I thought it would be. I was a little disappointed - until I opened it. The book is packed full of plants with detailed info and pictures on each one

the descriptions of each plant

I wish the pictures came in color, but I do absolutely love this book. It is easy to read, the pictures are large enough to see details on plants to identify, and it's very detailed in the descriptions of each plant and their uses. I'm looking forward to harvesting more wild plants now that I know what they are!

The book is extremely in depth and fascinating.

The book is extremely in depth and fascinating. It wasn't quite what I was looking for though. I was looking for more of a field guide maybe organized by region or environment type so I could see what might be in my area.

Well done, great pictures, good tips.

Well done, great pictures, good tips. The only I thing I would change is that a lot of it was redundant in the description. Overall worth the money and I would recommend it for the layout, great pictures and quality information.
