    Some Serious Issues...

    I was looking at this book tonight and noticed a couple of serious issues. The first being Phytolacca is generally not considered edible. The book covers that most of the plant is toxic but for the novice this can cause a dangerous mistake. The second serious issue I noticed was the Cicuta(water hemlock) pictured. This is an obvious issue. I also noticed numerous examples of plants that are generally toxic being listed as edible. This book could lead to a serious mistake!

    On Edible Plants

    I must say I simply love this book. It is one of the most useful that I own. Every time I open this book I find something new and interesting. The information it contains has allowed me the ability to go out into the nearby wild areas and confidently harvest and enjoy wild food, not only for my family's enjoyment but for health reasons as well. I never knew just how many plants were edible! And I was completely shocked to realize that some of the really good for you foods that grow wild grow right in my own back yard undiscovered! Thumbing through the pages and reading the entries, diciphering the key and putting the information into action has become one of the most fun activities I do lately. I plan to use this book until the binding is in tatters and has been replaced several issues or until I have I have memorized every word in it.
    Thanks to all the people who made this book possible!!!

    field guide

    I do not care for this book. The pictures are of poor quality and some are even in black and white, which is inexcuseable for this typy of book. This is not a good field guide.
