    1. Thomas Elias Peter Dykeman Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Edible Wild Plants: A North American Field Guide to Over 200 Natural Foods book, this is one of the most wanted Thomas Elias Peter Dykeman author readers around the world.

    2. Growing up I enjoyed a "mountain man" stage when I all but lived outdoors for months, almost obsessively studying My Side of the Mountain and this book.My siblings thought I was crazy, but they would often follow my lead anyway. As a result we had the greatest time and learned a lot. Some of our favorite adventures included "feeding the fish" in the creek (because our wooden hooks weren't sharp enough to catch them), cooking and eating dandelion jelly, building a treehouse, and making a picnic o [...]

    3. This book is awesome - tons of North American plants with their descriptions, recipes, photos, related species, poisonous look-alikes; and all the plants are arranged seasonally, which is a great help here in VT. I feel very confident using this book.

    4. Read this twice when I was in high school, along with another book just like it (which I also read twice). You might be bored by it, but I was enthralled!

    5. great writeups on each plant. The book organizes the plants by season in which they are found or best harvested. Enormously helpful. Pictures suck. Only one pic per plant and usually at the plant's full maturity, which is not necessarily the best time to harvest. Some of the pics are even in black and white (how does that help?!). This book is useful so long as you have at least one more book for cross reference.

    6. I took this book from the library to use as a field guide when my grandchildren and I hiked through the local State forest. What I found was an amazing guide including actual color photos of plants that tell not only which plants that we often dismiss as weeds are edible, but also how the plants can add to our daily diet. I found it strange that plants such as the chokecherry, which are poisonous to pick and eat raw, can be transformed into teas nad jams that are safe and edible. This book was a [...]

    7. This is a very serviceable book concerning foraging for wild, edible plants in the US and Canada. The aspects that drew me to this book were the multiple processing options for the edible plants. The text breaks down how to locate, identify, harvest and then eat the various species, including which ones are best made into jam, eaten raw or cooked before ingesting.The author also has a concern for sustainable harvesting of wild plants, an important aspect for the field considering the number of p [...]

    8. This is an amazing book. When I first looked at the preview online it didn't look good to me. But when I borrowed this book I learned how amazing it is. It's got 200+ wild edible plants, icons on how to use them. It also has recipes for the different ways to prepare it and a very good description on each plant. At the end of the book, there's all the poisonous plants with descriptions. The only thing I didn't like was how a few (3-4) of the plant pictures are in black and white (it's probably be [...]

    9. This is an invaluable guide to some of the more common plants that can be foraged in North America (mostly United States-centric, some Canada). The plants are divided by season, and each plate has colored pictures, along with indispensable information about how to identify, harvest, and prepare the plants. There is also a section on toxic plants, which everyone should be able to identify before going out and foraging. My only complaints are that I'd like to see more common plants listed (such as [...]

    10. This is a pretty solid book on the subject. It covers a wide swath of the edible wild plants found in America. The range maps are especially helpful. From them I know, for instance, that wild leeks are not generally found in eastern Iowa but are found across the Mississippi in Illinois. I also appreciate how the guide in broken up into seasons so you can concentrate on the right portion of the book depending on the time of the year.However, the depth of information is rather low and sometimes th [...]

    11. One thing that makes this book more worthwhile than others I've read like it, is that it has maps that show where a specific type of plant can be found. That way you don't waste your time looking for things that don't grow in your area. Overall- a great resource and on my wishlist to purchase, instead of borrow from the library. ;-)

    12. One of the better pocket guides, with full color photos of plants in different stages and parts, by season of harvest and with maps for locations across US. Some recipe/preparation information for each plant listed. Logo-keys in margin for safety, trail eating and a bunch of other labels.

    13. Pictures and layout of book was wonderful, but I think you would need a supplemental book to cover the many areas uncovered in this book. Like someone else said in review mainly centered in the west side of states and I am in Missouri.

    14. A really nice guide to edible plants one might find outside the boundaries of a garden. Wonderful photographs and descriptions make it easy to locate the plants. There are even a few recipes thrown in to enjoy your finds.

    15. I love the way this guide is divided by season and location. I'm definitely going to buy this book and keep it with me when foraging.

    16. A good intro to edible wild plants, but next time, I would get one specifically about Pacific Northwest edible plants.

    17. Very useful guide for garden weed identification. The promised recipes are more survivalist than gourmand, so caveat hipsters. Photographs are not always sufficient for positive ID.

    18. Good basic edible wild edible plants book with lots of pictures. Arranges the plants by season they are available which is useful. Good field guide.
