Excellent book, probably the best field guide I own. I am currently visiting Alaska and wanted a good field guide, partly to help me find wild edible foods. This book is very thorough, well organized, well illustrated, has easy to use keys in every section, and is packed with useful and interesting info. On top of that, the book is durable and water resistant. The book covers trees, shrubs, wildflowers, ferns, moss, and lichens. It includes a lot of info and edible and medicinal uses of plants, as well as other uses by indiginous peoples. I wish the authors of this book made guides for the eastern US, because I would love to buy it.
If you are looking for a book in the ares covered by this book, look no further. You will not regret buying it.
