5.0 out of 5 stars All You Need to Enjoy Your Nature Walk! Feb. 5 2013
By A. Epp
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One aspect that I like about this book is that there are full colour pictures of the actual plant under its listing (definitely helps for identification of the real deal). Another thing is that it goes into detail about the medicinal uses of the different parts of the plant and the different ways to prepare it for various uses. It also gives the appropriate warnings if a plant or preparation method may be harmful or dangerous (e.g. warning - should not be used during pregnancy - is found at times). Next it is not full of scientific jargon. It is very user friendly for those of use who are not biology majors. Finally in all my walks in nature (northern Sask.), I haven't found a plant that this book does not identify (yet). There is a pleasant thrill to be able to look at an unfamiliar plant and have the challenge of trying to identify it!

This is an amazing book! Very informative and written so that anybody can understand it. I have learned a lot about the plants in and around my yard already. I could identify a lot that I didn`t know of before. Highly recommended!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Glad I got it Aug. 4 2013
By rachelleme TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is better than many out there. It doesn't ramble on with stories about life 200 or so years ago, with a small mention of the plant. It gives clear and concise information on the plants and their uses. I imagine one would like to do further research on plant processing for accuracy. Images: good photography although pictures of the plant in all seasons would be very helpful, as well as line drawings that can sometimes show more than a photograph. But it gives me a place to start my research. You have to know the names of what's out there for us before you can research all it's uses!

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite plant book, indespensible. Feb. 18 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It has amazing coverage of so many species, and it synthesizes so much knowledge from so many sources. I haven't found another book that even compares in Northeastern Canada. This is my #1 medicinal plant reference.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book for reference, and general knowledge. But definitely not a field guide or how to book for eating wild foods, they make this very clear on the first page :)

Lots of plants will take a long time to remember the information but to me it was a must have,to have the information on all these plants in one book it is the encyclopaedia of plants found Canada it feels good going into the feild and knowing what each plant,flower,weed,etc will do.
