The one book I can not live without !! If you like hiking and foraging for good stuff this is a must have for your back pack... Its small enough to carry along and doesn't take up much room, has lots of information, beautiful helpful pictures to help you ID things and tells you if its edible or poisonous .... I always cross ref. any new finds with other books and the internet just to make sure i'm right ( get it wrong with some things and you can end up dead ) but this is the first book i grab always !!
