   Beautiful, clear
I'm a huge fan of Saul Bellow's work, and this book is just the book I was looking for. Full color photographs of each plant are included with each discription. We found over 10 of these plants growing on our property. The book includes ideas to repropagate the plants you like, as well as how to safely prepare them for eating.

   Is That Berry Poisonous? Now You Don't Need To Guess.
I bought this book because I got tired of telling my kids . I don't know when they asked me if something on one of our hikes was edible, or not. The book is great, the pictures and descriptions are clear, the content is easy to read and informative, and the quality of the published product is high, Silver said.

   absolutely AWESOME book to bring with you hiking/camping in the northwest
absolutely AWESOME book to bring with you hiking in the northwest, clear pictures and great information, we now have fresh veggies and berries to eat when we camp in the woods, and now bring a lot less food along, Mr. Cowger said. Turns out there is so many things to eat around that you could get fat in the wilderness, can't say enough good things about this book.

Thanks for the book, I have a lot of plants to identify. The pictures are clear and the descriptions are thorough, making them easy to read. Handy to have around, Mr. Cowger said.

   Great Book
If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you may want to have a good book to have, as there are many edible pants available in the woods and along creeks and rivers.

   Very Well Put Together
I recommend this book to anyone who reads it. I've been foraging for many decades, and I still learn a lot from this book, he said. I'm hoping for a book II that includes more plants, for instance I just discovered that Evening Primrose is edible, and I have several lovely and tasty weeds growing in the garden that aren't in the book.

This is a very useful guide with great photos and tips on how to identify, gather, and eat species common in the Pacific Northwest. The book, "Cascades," was co-authored by Douglas Lindsell and John Rolfe and covers Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and southeast Alaska. From my own experience, I've found most of the species in Idaho.

   Love it
This is an easy to use book. I have about 30 or 40 books on northwest plants, which is about twice the number of books on botany. I got so into it I read the whole cover thing to cover in one night, Byrne said.

   Great foraging book
A great book, well worth the money. It really gives you ideas for how to eat, and proper seasons and places to look for each plant. Only problem is, it could often use another photo or two of some plants. Already, it has at least one for each. It is also missing a few of its more common plants, which is a problem because they are so common.
