Food For Free (Collins Gem)
Food For Free (Collins Gem)
by Richard Mabey
Edition: Paperback
Price: 3.74

5.0 out of 5 stars yummy yum!, 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great little book with plenty of pictures and information, specially on the comparisons of what NOT to pick and eat eg: hemlock!
The only thing i didnt like much is that many of the pictures are drawings and not photographs, but that's more a personal thing as i thing photos hold more detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars trees trees trees!, 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this book to try and learn the tree species we have in Britain to further broaden my outdoor/bushcraft/mountain knowledge, and after trying from other books and internet sources i was starting to grow frustrated with the lack of detail much of it had. But then, after reading other reviews, i thought id give this book a go, and wow! sooo much easier to digest and learn from than anything else iv used. Straight away i went to a large wooded area near-by and soon began identifying the trees that surrounded me from the great detailed photos and written descriptions of what i should be looking for.

This review is from: Food for Free (Hardcover)
Wow what an incredible book! i received it and didn't expect it to be so large and stuffed full with info. I previously ordered the collins gem "food for free" book (see separate review) and although it was a great little book it was far from comprehensive in regards to picture/drawing accuracy and detail. But This book has a whole wealth of knowledge and is a great go to book for just about all the edible plants about. Highly recommended!
BUT! there is a downside...like i said this book is big...and heavy. So is not the best thing to haul about as you go digging in the dirt and munching on weeds, But i found if used WITH the little collins gem book, they compliment each other very well and help make sure your not nibbling something you shouldnt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly useful bit of kit, 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i purchased this charger for a month long cycle trip in order to make sure i could keep all my gizmo's (phone,gps, cycle computer etc) charged when there was no socket around and also just to have piece of mind that i always had a means to keep my phone with power. At first i was a bit dubious as to whether it was truly worth the money..but having been on the trip and returned, i can honestly say it payed for itself so many times! and will always carry it now when im in the outdoors either long distance cycling or when on multi-day walks.
It does take a long time to charge (an entire night usually) but the amount that is gained from it is simply brilliant. I have a samsung note 3, which takes and uses a fair bit of juice through the day (specially through continued use as a camera and then to view movies on at night) but this seemed to charge it faster than from the mains, and many ,many times over aswell!
Defiantly a good bit of gear to have if you regularly spend multiple days outdoors etc! great to have for the peace of mind.

When im out walking in the mountains and moors i'm stunned how many fellow walkers i talk to do not carry a whistle such as this! Its tiny in size and could very well make the difference if the worse should happen.

As the old saying goes- better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but...wish id made the switch sooner!!, 11 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Im an avid outdoors enthusiast and have bought many compasses over the years, and had been using a 'silva' compass as my main "go-to" compass for as long as i can remember. But having read a magazine article about advanced navigation and it recommending this particular compass, I decided to splash out and get one...and jeeze i wish id gotten one sooner.
Every detail and tool on it make navigating so much easier and precise and gives you that much more confidence in knowing which directing to follow and your own skills!
GREAT INVALUABLE BIT OF KIT! (perfectly partnered with 'the ultimate navigation manual')
