5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book! In a league if its own., April 14 2011
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!
