2.0 out of 5 stars OK - but not enough detail
Self-Sufficiency Foraging

This is a good book for all those new to foraging and for the more experienced. It covers 7 areas, edible wild plants, popular wayside kitchen herbs, wild fruits, wild nuts, mushrooms, truffles and other edible fungi, seaweeds and shellfish.
With good illustrations and descriptions to help identify each food. It also tells you where to find it, what time of year is best and also how to use it. Great book. worth the money.

Self-Sufficiency Foraging
The book is a little haphazard in how it presents the information. The illustrations, whilst well done, are not really enough to act as a positive guide. There is not enough guidance in the Mushroom section to avoid potentially lethal mistakes. It has the feel of a book that has been thrown together and could do with a good edit and re-format.
The River Cottage Guides are a better bet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Pictures, 8 April 2014

This review is from: Self-sufficiency Foraging (Paperback)
I love the vintage pictures of this series - the book is not really a practical guide to foraging though, probably because of the scope (thin book = small descriptions) and the pictures, ironically. Photos would be much more descriptive and helpful in this case.
