Great little book
on 19 December 2011
If you are new to eating wild plants you will learn a lot from this book and you will be able to start foraging straight away all year round. If you have been eating wild for some time you will still learn a lot, believe me! You may need to use it in conjunction with a plant identification book, which you can easily do via the plants' scientific names. This little book is all you need for an overview of the subject and there's a good list of resources to help you delve deeper. There's a sensible and inspiring introduction too. I actually think this little book goes a long way towards supplanting the classic 'Food for Free', especially for those who are interested in raw or 'living' foods. It's also fantastic value of course!
n.b. it doesn't include mushrooms for which a bigger book would be needed, and preferably an experienced companion.
