If you live in the Upper Midwest I would consider buying both this book and the Foragers Harvest.
Reasons For Purchasing:
1. Includes the most complete collection of edible wild plants for the Upper Midwest, and even shows range maps for several plants.
2. Shows images for almost all of the plants. (But not many on mushrooms)
3. Focuses on a specific area instead of wasting space listing foods in other parts of the country.
4. Has excellent organization.
5. Has an illustrated glossary for reference.
6. Shows detailed information on things such as how to can foods, shell nuts, make jams and jellies, tap maples for syrup, and make fruit leather.
7. Shows where the different foods grow by listing each food in every group it fits: Wetlands, Streams/Rivers and Ponds/Lakes, Hardwood Forests, Mixed Conifer/Softwood Forests, and Agricultural Areas and Prairies
8. Shows when each food grows by listing them by what season they grow: spring, summer, fall, and winter
9. Shows fairly detailed information on the habitat and range for each species of plant.
10. Shows quite a few recipes for each food, averaging about three of four for each.
11. Shows information on how to identify, harvest, and cook the foods, unlike others that only identify them.
Reasons For Not Purchasing:
1. Shows considerably small images, many of them just 3.5 by 4 cm.
2. The book is slightly larger than most wild food books, the dimensions being 7 by 8 inches.
3. Uses about forty pages on mushrooms, most of which I wouldn't eat unless there were larger pictures to identify them with.
