even though this book is the same as 30 years ago, this book has everything you or any scout could wish for!

Though this is still an excellent field guide, buyers should be aware that this is the exact same book published in 1977 (as the inside copyright shows). The book was rejacketed for the 1999 release but none of the references or information (including recommended reading in the back) has been updated.

This is a handy little book to take with you on a wilderness hike. You never know what mother nature will throw at you and it is always good to be prepared.

Can't believe some are complaining that it is the same since 1977.   I do not believe any new species have evolved, so no changes are needed. It is an excellent reference and the descriptions and color illustrations are spot on.

It is too large to bring afield. It includes color photographs. I bought Tom Brown's around the same time which has good information on utilization but mumbo jumbo and mere illustrations. Maybe there cannot be a perfect field guide of this sort.

I have used Peterson's books for over a decade and they are second to none and easy for the beginners. A must have for every library.
