I love this tiny little book!! I once was lucky enough to find a tiny book about herbs that is pocket sized and very useful, I never would have imagined I could find the same in a book for wild foods. It is really simple and easy and explains that we shouldn't be afraid to eat wild things and other tips and advice, some I like, some of it I ignore. It may not have enough information for some, but it has enough for me, it even crams in a whole bunch of recepies! I can't believe all the information could fit into it. When I first ordered it, I didn't think it would be this small, but I wasn't dissapointed, I would hate to have to carry around an unmanageble guide when out forgaing, even if it is A5 sized, this one is just perfect for me, and I hope you will ike it too. It is excellent for beginners I would think. I am only 19 so of course it is essential for me to have something to guide me, but then again, if you know a lot about wild food, you wouldn't need to bring any book out with you :)
+ it's is extremely full of pictures so you won't have much trouble finding the right plant, and it even has pictures of deadly relatives in some cases, so you don't pick a poisonous mushroom, if it really looks like the edible one..
