    1. So, this book was a little infuriating When I picked it up and looked it over, the information was good and I thought it d be a pretty useful thing to read See, I m thinking If I ever get stuck in the wilderness here, I will have some really good knowledge to go on Well, that isn t the case This book says Do not use as a field guide and I really don t understand what the point of it is It has neat facts and tells you things about the plants, but it pretty much states that the information is usel [...]

    2. I don t like writing bad reviews, but I feel compelled to after having read a significant portion of this book because a novice forager could seriously hurt him herself going by its information By way of qualification, I want to preface that I teach foraging in Maritime Canada, and have written extensively on it, and have been foraging since I was a small child where it was a way of life for my exceedingly poor rural family At our homestead wilderness skills school, my family and I augment about [...]

    3. This book is fantastic I really got into wildcrafting a couple of years ago and this was one of the first books I purchased on the subject Worth every penny Very informative and excellent categorization of plants based on their plant families It has a laminate water resilient type of texture to the pages which is excellent when you are out and about in the wilderness Bought a copy for a friend as well After accumilating quite the collection of books on plants and wildcrafting this is still the n [...]

    4. I m learning alot from this book although I wish the poisonous plants section was not at the end of the book and I wish there was a clear warning and description for poisonous plants that may look like safe plants I m just not satisfied with the amount of information providedd it s really not very clear when I m looking through the book Take a look at wild carrot water hemlock and you might know what I mean.As with most of these types of books, my biggest complaint is that they only show the pl [...]

    5. This book was very informative, educational and much much As boring as one might think this book might be it truly isn t There s history way to use plants and warning about them I learn new things about plants I thought I knew well It teaches you about poisonous plants and vegetation Love love loved this book I am going to bring it hiking with me from now on If you re into the outdoors you should pick this up for sure I promise it s not boring or dry.

    6. Great book, easy to read and full of interesting ethnobotanical notes, as I expect from Lone Pine and this series The main drawback to this is that it tries to sum up an enormous amount of useful plants into a few highlights and in doing so has to pass on a lot of them Nice starting point for someone new to foraging, but not enough information for anyone who is than amateur level.

    7. After a 2 hour nature walk with a Mi kmaq elder and healer, I wanted a good refernce companion This looks excellent and look forward to using in my own walks around Trout Lake and other parts of the province.After reading it, you really must have an experienced elder as a mentor

    8. I really enjoy learning about botany, so I have a few books on the subject including this one which was a lot of fun to take with us husband and I when we went on our camping trip We identified several of the plants in our camp site which was very entertaining and informative.
