I LOVE this book! The day after I purchased it, I went for a hike which took on a whole new meaning! I came home with wild-foraged food and inspiration for experimentation in the kitchen. This is a beautiful book, a perfect reference, and an excellent trail companion! Experiences in the woods, deserts, and marshes of the mountain west will never be the same!
This is an excellent reference for beginning or experienced foragers. The scope and coverage, the quality and particular selections of the photos for each species treatment, the writing, graphics and layout are all outstanding. I particularly like the clear, consistent and helpful formatting—the “layers” of information and ease of accessing information. It’s all very appealing to the eye, well-written, and easily understood and used.The content is sound and thorough. There’s none of the generalizing that is sometimes found in other herbal references; the author's passion for each species is apparent through her lively voice of experience. I appreciate the conservation ethic that appears here and there throughout the book, with clear explanations for foragers who might be naive re: inappropriate harvesting. As well, she includes cautionary advice, where needed, about possible risks in contact, preparation and consumption. The author sustained a fun and inspiring “teachable moment” in the entire book!
