Positive melody On Nov 6, 2008, melody wrote:

This field guide gives detailed descriptions and photographs of many edible plants. Fruits and nuts are obviously covered in great detail but lesser known seeds and leafy greens are presented with harvesting and preparation instructions.

These is a section on poisonous plants and poisonous look-alikes. The guide is small enough to go in a backpack or camera bag but boasts nearly 300 pages.

Very informative and well presented.
