No PDF

Although the information is well-researched and informative, it is not at all helpful in identifying edible plants and comparing them to lookalikes as advertised. There is no PDF to go along with it.

Thanks to the author

I especially appreciate the details on each plant at different stages of its life. I also like that he selected plants that can be found all across the US, instead of focusing on plants in a specific area. Marvelous photos, and well-written recipes. I hope the author writes more books like this!

Quite interesting

This book focuses on the most common types of weeds that you can eat across America. However, unlike other books, it goes into very great detail about each one, including how palatable the weed is. Previous to this, I was under the impression that all weeds were probably as pungent of an experience as dandelion.

Very good book

The author is sharing his own foraging experience, it's not about theories or research, it's real-life exploring and love from nature.

Eye openIng book!

This book was a game-changer for me in the way I take care of my yard. I examine every plant that grows in my yard and determines whether it is beneficial or poisonous. I do not see weeds! I have discovered so many medicinal and edible plants.

Great one

This is not the only book you will need for edible foods. I feel like the list of plants is not as broad as it should be(maybe I didn’t look close enough haha) Though the info on each plant is amazing
