This review is from: Food from the Wild (Paperback)
A well set out and easy to read book! I loved the bold and uncomplicated manner of this book from the second I opened it. Excellent and simple color pictures help to make the whole foragin experience with this book more interactive, compared with say Miles Irving's excellent book (The Forager Handbook) which has black and white pictures an heavier to carry. This book is smaller and lighter the Irving's, therefore making it easier to carry around. The book is set out in sections; Fruit, Nut And Seeds, Flowers, Greens And Vegtables, Herbs, Roots, Whole Plants, Seeweeds, Fungi, which I love, as it means I can skip right to the relevent section without neccessarily knowing the specific plant. Not as comprehensive as Miles Irving's book, but overall easier to use, loads of useful info, and plenty of areas of interest as far a expanding my awareness of wild food.
