Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book  Apr 6, 2010
It's great to look through and find plants you've seen all over place and finally put a name on it.

I can't wait to take it camping/hiking this summer!
 
Regretful buy  Mar 20, 2010
I'm really disappointed with this book. The black and white pictures aren't hardly as detailed as they should be for such poor, colorless representation of the plants. How in the WORLD am I supposed to accurately spot edible wild plants when the drawings are so lame?! I'm not stupid, I know how to utilize a book to my best advantage, and at most I would say you could use this book as a cross-reference but this would not be the only book I would take with me while foraging. I initially had doubts about this book when I looked at the negative reviews, but was optimistic. Now I wish I had chosen another book. Lame Lame Lame.
 
for my wife  Dec 23, 2009
Bought this for my wife for christmas. We go hiking and this would be fun to try to find the plants together. I looked through the book ant it look sreally great. Of course the true test will come when my wife gets it.
 
buy a book with color pictures  Oct 10, 2009
I bought this book to use as field guide thinking it would be able to use quite easily but was quickly dissapointed. For starters the pics are all drawings, and not that great, you honestly cannot use a drawing of a plant to indentify it because so many plants look similar the leaves and the flowers can look a lot of like the color is what is different and this book limits the colors, some pic depict leaves as large when the are infact small, vice versa, buy a book with color pictures, I could identify 50% of plants with this book due to black and white illustration just to much of a pain to use really..
 
My tattered copy has proven useful!!  Oct 2, 2009
Although this book was published in 1977 it is probably one of the better books in regards to organization and formatting. This book almost never fails to have some information on edible plants that I am curious about. If you are new to learning about edible plants please don't rely on this book or any other single book to identify a plant before you eat it!!! Other reviews about this book bash it because of its age and line drawings but the drawings should be looked at as an initial visual to assist in making sure you are identifying the plant correctly. Plants organized by flower color which is great for quick field identification. Has 15 color plates for some common plants totaling about 75 color pictures. Someone teaching themselves about edible plants should own numerous books with good color photos and defining characters to cross reference to be sure you are collecting what you think your collecting. Furthermore, some books, like this one, contain wrong information copied from others such as the tubers of Water Lilies (Nymphaea species) being edible (pg. 22) when according to other resources they are poisonous. In any case, here are the things I like about it: 1) no matter what time of year you can go to the "Finding Edible Plants" section in the back and look up common edible plants by habitat and season. 2) There is also a food uses section so if you want to make a spice for example you can go to the "Seasonings/Condiments" section and find plants by season 3) Each plant account gives brief but informative information about the plant such as scientific name, distinguishing characters, uses, warnings, where it is found, when it flowers, edible parts and the season for the edible parts. This book initiated my interest in edible plants. It is full of useful information and I recommend this book for anyone interested in edible plants.
