More About the Author
I've been writing in earnest since 1998, when I started A Gift of Poetry (dot com) which is still alive and well today (please Google A Gift of Poetry and you'll find it). I have since broadened my horizons and now write books on a wide variety of subjects. Two of my big passions are cooking and vegetable gardening so there are quite a few that focus on growing or picking your own and cooking from scratch. The vast majority of my recipes have all been tried and tested and honed over a number of years. Most agree the results are delicious (well, that's what they tell me :) so please do try a couple of recipes and let me know how you get on. I've also written a few self help books and (IMHO) The 77 Secrets is definitely worth a read. I also publish and market for other aspiring authors and help them become known in the marketplace. So, all in all, pretty busy but enjoying life. I hope you are too (if not, please read The 77 Secrets :).
All the very best, Allen xx
Top Customer Reviews
Allen Jesson's How To Forage For Free Food - Let's Get Foraging (Foraging Free Food Series) is full of good, though very basic, ideas for stretching your food budget with this sort of "found" food. Most unfortunately, however, Allen included no pictures at all (pictures would have been a huge help) and refers fairly frequently to a recipe book not yet available.
UK readers will find this guide perhaps more useful than US readers as some of the information is specific only to the UK. In particular, fishing laws/regulations are different and vary here by state.
As a guide for rank beginner's this has potential. More experienced foragers will want more in-depth information. Your call.
The author does spend quite a bit of time talking about "dumpster diving" and other means of attaining food destined for the landfill, but as this reviewer sees most fields and hedgerows as bountiful supermarkets, there are enough wild plants available without the risky business of digging through the trash.
It is hoped that later editions will expand into more examples of foraging with better formatting as well as important illustrations.
It was free or it would have received 1star.
This book is more an exhortation to forage than anything informative. Perhaps if I lived in the UK my opinion would differ but I seriously doubt it.

Great book to have! You never know when you need this info. I would like a hardcover, but this is fine! BUY IT!Published 12 months ago by jbangledorf
I found this interesting. It always helps to be informed in the event of an emergency or when times aree tough.Published on March 11, 2013 by Denise Gonzales
Can't believe it! No picture, really? That's silly, considering the topic. I wish I knew this before hand. How disappointing.Published on February 15, 2013 by Kara
I thought it would be a very informative book. It is if you live in the UK. I live in the US. So, it was not very helpful for me.Published on February 10, 2013 by Susan Jaisle
It wasn't much more than "go dumpster diving and berry picking". And it took too many pages to say that.Published on February 8, 2013 by ADM
