This book was a disappointment, and I can see why the previous reader/s rated it only 1 star. This is not a guide that will help you identify plants. For hard-core foragers or really keen newbie foragers, this might be a good resource, and it does include recipes, but there are only a few drawing and a few photos (after the Index). Written in a 'for dummies' kind of style.
