    Not Recommended

    This "field guide" is not as advertised. It is basically a collection of stories seemingly more for entertainment that actual use in the field.

    There are no pictures to assist with identification and there is very little technical information.

    This book seems written for more entertainment purpose than actual use. I would not recommend anyone base their knowledge of plants from this book. It seems that if the author does have knowledge of edible and medicinal plants, he is reluctant to supply that knowledge for fear of someone misusing it.

    I was highly disappointed.

    An actual quote from page 44 of this book, "This book is not a field guide to the identification of wild edible or medicinal plants."

    Just a few pictures of the plants in this book would have made it 1000 times better. I expected more from Tom Brown Jr.
