My Dad recently gifted me this great book and it is one of the best that I have ever received!
I also prefer books with good descriptions, lots of photos of each plant to make identification easier, and to cover the plant from identification to the plate.
I have an extensive collection of foraging and wild foods books; Edible Wild Plants is one of my favorites and I highly recommend it.
