Read full description of the books:



Informative and interesting, Lee Allen Peterson's A Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants: Eastern and Central North America is a reference guide that has been conceptualised for one main purpose and therefore specifically and only describes the many edible wild plant species of Eastern and Central North America (and while some edible wild plants usually found primarily in Western North America are indeed included as well, this generally only happens if these also tend to at times occur in Eastern and Central regions). Lee Allen Peterson (who I believe is the son of Roger Tory Peterson, the renowned ornithologist, and founder of the concept of the Peterson Field Guides) not only details what these edible wild plant species look like, how tall they are, how to identify the plants, the amount of seeds, fruits they generally produce and the like, he also shows different ways in which the plants might be prepared and consumed, warnings about plants that might be toxic and/or potentially lethal if the wrong parts are used and/or ingested, and (very if not even most essentially) warnings about toxic look-alikes (this is especially imperative for plants like wild carrot, wild parsnip and such, which might easily be confused with deadly poison or water hemlock, and in fact, the author cautions beginners, novice foragers not even try to harvest wild carrots, wild parsley, yarrow etc. due the risks of possible and often lethal misidentification).

A Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants: Eastern and Central North America features both accompanying illustrations (line drawings) of the presented edible plant species and a section of colour photographs (colour plates). And personally, while I do find the illustrations easier to discern and identify than the photographed plants on the colour plates, I definitely would prefer the illustrations to have been rendered in colour, rather than simply appear as black and white, read monochrome line drawings. I also think that it would be both interesting and fun, had the author included his own specific recipes for at least some of the featured wild plants. However, all in all, this is a wonderful and much informative field guide and botanical reference manual, both for budding as well as serious harvesters/foragers, as well as for individuals like myself (who will not likely ever attempt to harvest or consume these edible wild plants, but do find the presented information on plants, botany and wild harvesting interesting and readable).
