Brief descriptions of about 50 edible wild plants. Color illustrations show leaves, seeds, flowers, and fruit for easy identification. Descriptions of what the plant is useful for are very brief. Some edible plants have toxic parts, and this is clearly indicated.

I was hoping for more information about how to prepare or use the plants, and if they had any health or medicinal benefits. But this is just a field guide for identification purposes only.
