    Book details


"Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants in Wild (and Not So Wild) Places" shows reader how to find and prepare more than five hundred different plants for nutrition and better health, including such common plants as mullein (a tea made from the leaves and flowers suppresses a cough), stinging nettle (steam the leaves and you have a tasty dish rich in iron), cattail (cooked stalks taste similar to corn and are rich in protein), and wild apricots (an infusion made with the leaves is good for stomach aches and digestive disorders). More than 260 detailed line drawings help readers identify a wide range of plants - many of which are suited for cooking by following the more than thirty recipes included in this book. There are literally hundreds of plants readily available underfoot waiting to be harvested and used either as food or as a potential therapeutic. This book is both a field guide to nature's bounty and a source of intriguing information about the plants that surround us.

Review Text

  • By Alex Mavrin on 18 July 2005

    I have just got this book. Didn't read it yet,- trust it is well-written.However, some HUGE issues:a) America-oriented. When giving the plant habitat, none of European countries are mentioned. I believe it goes about a lot of plants that only grow in America.b) Paper. On the back of the book it says : "printed on recycled paper". No doubts it is true. It was ages ago since I saw the book printed on such bad (light, poriferous, gray in colour) paper. You cannot take it out with you, as the moist or rain drops can easily destroy the book.c) Illustrations. For some (like me) the most important part of the book. There are NO photographs over there (can you believe?), only low- to middle-quality (black-and-white!) pencil sketches. Looks like they were printed in "econo mode",- many are extremely bad.OVERAL IMPRESSION : very nice work, very badly prepared. Think twice before buying.

    The book is huge, about the size of a telephone directory (I was expecting a standard size paperback). On arrival it becomes clear that the book is about U.S plants, not U.K! So not useful at all.
