"A few things I like about this guide is that it covers wild foods and plants found all over North America and not just here in the southwestern part of the Unites States. The guide provides color high resolution photographs of each plant and covers each one individually. It covers such things as beneficial properties, uses, growing season, where they grow and how to identify them. This is a great guide for having in your ruck sack as a reference for when you’re out hiking, in a real survival situation or anything in between. Obviously, also great for studying wild plants and getting to know them."

"The book’s paragraphs are concise and poetic. Each sentence is purposeful, enhancing the setting and action. If Piercy’s characters make you weep, it’s because they’re so real."
