   Useful reference
What I liked most about this book is that I have been curious about trying wild plants, but I didn't know which ones are edible. I love the pictures of the plants and the helpful descriptions and recipes. What I this book mentioned was that there were multiple poisonous plants in both the beginning and end of book, but had NO pictures of them, which bothered me. I know I can look through pictures myself, but it would have been handy to have them all in one book.
   Good beginner guide to foraging. Excellent recipes!
I'm now interested in learning more about plants and getting this as a present. What I've been impressed by the step-by-step approach to learning about the usable parts of plants is how to properly taste them. My suggestion to improve plant identification as noted in the book would be to show illustrations with the plant as a whole — and also a grouping of leaves, he said. A good measuring tool would be to have a guide to the size of the plants. The footnotes and bibliographies seem to be quite extensive, although might be more helpful if listed at the end of the chapters, or if added for specific topic reference. I have truly enjoyed the book and the accompanying videos, and I'm excited to continue my research. It's great to have such a variety of recipes to choose from, said Mrs. Caramore.
   Fantastic book- highly recommend
Our ancestors found dozens of edible wild plants to add to meat and fish, and the plants are now being grown. With Edible Wild Plants, it's easy for modern-day man to safely forage for food in the wild. This informative, engaging book is a must-have for anyone that enjoys vegetables and fruits and is looking for more variety, Raymond said. It includes pictures of the edible parts of each plant to aid in identification. It is recommended that you have this book with you at all times hiking or camping.
   Edible Wild Plants; a great beginners guide
The book is titled "Introduction to Edible Plants" and was originally written by Douglas Hubbard. The book discusses how one can get started and what tools they will need to harvest and forge wild plants to eat. The book does a great job of describing what plants are good to eat and what they look like. It also covers how to avoid the nasty plants that could essentially do more harm than good. Since I'm behind the ears of this subject it really helps to have this book in handy. Other than that it was a great read, Gillian said.
   Eye Opener
However, I did enjoy some of the non-foodie uses, like making tea or bath soaks. I did also like the thoroughness of this book and all of the pictures, and I am slightly curious how some of the things that I already make like minestrone would taste with some of their additions.
   Fun and practical
This book is a great read. Like poetry foragers, Robert Frost said, "it's like poetry foragers." That's Me. Like most people, I like to know what I can find and where I can find it. The book goes into great detail describing such edible wild and domestic plants. Leaving you with the urge to research more, but giving you enough information to start doing so. What I liked the best about this book was the use of the wordage. Very expressive and you keep coming back for more. I consider it a great find, said Dr. Chester Floyd, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California.
   The Book to Read if You Want to Know All the Ins & Outs of Edible Plant Life
If you ever wanted to know what plants are harmful versus good for what ails you, this book is a great place to start. Part one looked at the foundational elements necessary to properly assess edible plant life. He also took great care in chronicling the evolution, hunting and gathering of this type of plant. Then, part two pertains to the specifics of the plants themselves as it thoughtfully relates to recipes and remedies broken down so far as to ensure that the subtitles are in alphabetical order. What makes this book unique is its ability to combine multiple subject areas into one easy-to-understand volume, said Loy and Kelly. It is truly written in such a way that anyone can understand it.
   Good for beginners, and those already familiar
This is a great resource for someone newly introduced to the lifestyle, as it offers basic information, but also for someone who has practiced from the earth for years. There are some good preparation tips and safety tips, too, he said. Part Two of the book is devoted to recipes and remedies. This book is great for someone who is looking to live more 'from the earth,' and I would recommend it to many, he said.
   An excellent addition to any library
It's a great book for every naturalist, science teacher, nature lover, and every parent of young nature lovers. This book will be of great interest to anyone who has ever wondered how to properly harvest wild plants. This book will help you find what to look for and where, how to gather the wild plants, and how to prepare them. In addition to that, you get colorful pictures of each plant, recipes for teas and smoothies to main entrees, as well as a glossary of definitions.
   Very informative!
About a year ago, I decided to become a vegetarian to widen the variety of food I eat. The chapter description of the universal edibility test put my mind at ease about wrongly selecting a wild plant.
