Unlike most edible wild plant field guides, the pictures of this book are absolutely outstanding. The very colorful and detailed pictures allow you to see clearly almost every distinct feature of a plant, and the major features of a plant are often magnified to allow you to see them closer. Not only that, but most of the pictures and the features of the plants in this book are against a white background. Most wild plant guides only feature photographs that are way too small for you to see the major features of a plant, or they contain only black and white pictures or line drawings, and most guides contain not any more than 400 plants. However, this book covers 1000+ of the most COMMON plants found around the world - both edible plants and toxic plants. A lot of the plants in this book are found in America, but SOME of them are from other countries and other regions of the earth, such as the tropics, rainforests, deserts and the sea.
Each plant in this book is thoroughly described, and the edible parts of each plant is mentioned in this book. A few of the plants mentioned in this book also have a few other uses besides edibility, that are described.
This book is also greatly organized. Some of the major sections of this book include plant basics, terminology, cultivated plants, preparing wild food, herbs, edible flowers, daisy like plants, plants from the desert, dandelion like plants, berries, trees, grasses, seaweeds, unbrella like plants, poisonous plants, diseases & conditions and what plants have historically healed them.Read more ›
a must have for anyone seeking a healthy life style
Full of local foods free to me. I no longer fear not having food incase of a disaster.
I am grateful for all the work that put every answer in one book. I only wish I would have had this book when my children were home I would have not fall prey to the Doomsday gimmicks.
No pack ratting food any more.
