I bought this book from a local trail outfitters in NC and was excited to read up on unknown edibles as well as edibles that I do know from having grown up in the area. Some of the more popular wild edibles from my area weren't in the book. I was disappointed.

Also, some of the edibles listed in the book are NOT really edible. It states things like, "Edible in very small amounts. Toxic in larger amounts." Ummmmm ... if this is a guide to edible wild plants, please stick to those where I do not have to carefully weigh out the amount I am planning on eating.

And let's not even get in to the plants that are listed as only edible by birds. Are they reading the book?

Perhaps a better title for the book would be the Field Guide to Wild Plants (leave out the edible part) which more accurately represents the book's content.

Which is, of course, not to say that the book wasn't 90% edible plants which are safe for humans in all quantities.

Excellent guide with an all-in-color identifier of more than 100 edible wild foods in North America.
