The book, unlike others, is organized by how you stumble across wild plants: geographic context. Or, more simply, they are organized in the environment that they are found. Thus, plants in wet areas are treated separately from meadow plants. And plants of the forest have their unique section separate from the seashore and mountianous plants. Yes, we have added plants from the seashore and tidal zones as well as my favorites from mountainous areas...We didn't leave the sunbirds out either. There are several desert edible included.
There is a important section on poisonous plants and poisonous look alikes.
There are more recipes, better recipes and lists of my top ten favorite wild plants and my top ten favorite edible flowers.
With color photos and attention to plants that are quality food (vitamin, mineral and phytochemical content) this new field guide is a great value for under ten dollars.
Find 35 wild plants growing in your back yard. Discover ancient pharmaceutical uses for common herbs. An appendix
catalogs and indexes many poisonous and poisonous look-a-likes.
