More About the Author

Hi,

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

Grandma has been picking wild berries and canning Wild Grape Jelly for many a year, a habit acquired from her Grandpa, who just about the time the snow cleared could be found crawling on hands & knees over the extensive lawn, very sharp knife in hand, harvesting the early dandelions. Grandpa always called those his "spring tonic" - a great source of vitamins after an old fashioned winter of no fresh greens. Harvest them very young, just as the leaves begin to appear, or they will be very bitter. July & August always brought great pails of wild blackberries and blueberries. In late August Grandpa would disappear for hours daily gathering wild butternuts. No Thanksgiving or Christmas was complete without a big box of those butternuts!

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.

While the information was ok, it would have been very helpful to have some visuals to compare when trying to identify fungi found in the wild.

Not very long and you're halfway through the book before he gives you info. Pictures would have been helpful while descriptions are nice beginners need pictures. There are too many deadly plants and berries that could be mistaken for some of these. A search on line, talking to your extension agent or forestry department would be more helpful.

Having taught woodlore and outdoor survival for many years, I eagerly looked forward to reading this book on foraging. Though written for readers in the United Kingdom, across the pond, the information still has some value. There are some differences: the author writes of Wild Garlic (Allium ursinum) which is not present in the United States though closely related to the North American wild leek (Allium tricoccum) and the author also mentions Rock samphire (Crithmum maritimum) which is also not present in the western hemisphere.

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.

Not much here. Look, unless you already do this, I wouldn't feel comfortable eating wild CRAP with this book alone. There were no pictures in the book. Author warns you that if you cannot absolutely positively identify it, then skip it. Well thanks a lot Sherlock. I think I'll skip foraging and suggest you skip this stupid book. 2 stars.

It really had little useful information. No photographs. It s very short and specifically about foraging in the UK.
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.

Jesson has written a great how-to for wildcrafting in the UK. Some of the concepts transfer easily, but you can tell where the author's home turf is. If only we had that many mushrooms here.

Very helpful to understand how to identify good from bad and where to look for them and how weather affects the growth of the mushrooms.
