Foraging noob before this audiobook...

Thanks, Paul for this great audiobook. The choice of the narrator was excellent, he makes listening to this audiobook an outstanding journey. I live in Canada and there is a lot of common vegetation with the Pacific Northwest. One of my favorite chapters was how to identify poisonous plant look-alikes.
I recommend this book for all foraging noobs like me or to those who like to spend time hiking or walking through the forest and don't want to get a skin reaction when in contact with a poisonous plant. Knowing your plants is extremely important!

Great Resource For Harvesting.

With the current pandemic and supply chain issues America is facing right now, I have been looking for a good harvesting book like this to show me what to harvest and how to do it properly so you can better the environment. It also tells you about common poisonous plants, and how to find out if a plant is poisonous. Great book!

Perfect for beginners

Overall good lesson. Found a lot of useful information. Really enjoyed the recipes at the end that maybe you are a little more abstract sounding due to the ingredients but excited to try them! Narration was just a bit slow for me so I did increase the speed.

Amazingly healthy taste!

Amazing! I and my wife loved that book. Such interesting and healthy recipies. I opened something new. My family loves that kind of healthy food that nature can share with you. There are very detailed explanations and recipes that make this book so enjoyable. I love tea, and this book gives so many other options for adding ingredients from nature. It also provides you with places where you can get those flowers or plants, so your trip will be filled with more interesting activities and knowledge, putting you one step ahead in living a healthy lifestyle.

A fast track to nature

It's fantastic to have this skill! This book is excellent! Beginners will find the information in this book easy to grasp. My friends will be amazed when we go camping next time!

They generally aren't!

Many of the rules are the same. I am hoping anyway.
When my friends and I walk together in the woods and camp in the wild in Wales, UK, I am sure the same rules apply.

Forests and edible wild plants were among the many things I learned. But, unfortunately, I never really gave it much thought.
Harvesting and foraging can be special skills during times of crisis.

I highly recommend it!

A Brilliant guide full of knowledge!

I often hike with my friends, and sometimes we camp in the wild forests. I found this audiobook taught me a lot about forests and edible wild plants. It's really helpful for us to harvest and forage when necessary or emergency. Highly recommended!
