Format: Paperback
This is an Amazing book! I have several Wild Edible books and this along with "The Forager's Harvest" is by far the best I have ever read. As with "The Forager's Harvest" Thayer includes an abundance of very detailed photo's and descriptions of the plants at various growing stages and gives very entertaining personal accounts and stories about his experiences with each plant, which makes for a very enjoyable read. This is the second Wild Edible book I have read from cover to cover (the first being "The Forager's Harvest"), as my other Wild Edible books were used as basic reference guides which included very little detail and mostly just regurgitation of plant information from other sources with only one picture of the plant at one stage (and not necessarily the optimal edible stage). This book is one the best I have read thus far on the subject of wild edible. Congratulations to Samuel Thayer once again on such a beautiful and informative book!

We did enjoy the book but it was not as easy as we had hoped to navigate the pages of plants our other book "Edible & Medicinal Plants of Canada" seem so much easier to use, But do not take as a totally negative review as combined with it worked very well I would buy both as they somewhat complement each other

If you buy this book merely for interest's sake, you will be surprised at the entertaining and personable style of Thayer's writing: he brings wonderful insight and stories to make the read interesting.

If you buy this book merely for entertainment (which is frankly quite unlikely), you will be surprised at the depth of knowledge and experience that Thayer brings to his narratives.

A perfect mix of facts and anecdotes, Thayer presents something infinitely better than book knowledge: refined personal experience. You will likely be very impressed with this book. I have heard similar praise for his other book, Forager's Harvest.

Great book for newbies to foraging. The author's personal accounts of how he was introduced to a particular plant kept the information light and not boring. He also is quite honest if he does not know something and says so.
