This informative and interesting guide describes edible wild plants of Eastern and Central North America (some edible wild plants of Western North America are mentioned as well, but only if they also 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 plants look like, how tall they are, how to identify the plants, the amount of seeds, fruits they generally produce and so on, he also shows the different ways in which the plants might be prepared, warnings about plants that might be toxic if the wrong parts are used and/or ingested, and (very importantly) warnings about toxic look-alikes (which is especially imperative for plants like wild carrot, wild parsnip and the like, which might easily be confused with deadly poison or water hemlock, in fact, the author cautions that beginners not try to harvest wild carrots, wild parsley, yarrow etc. due the risks of possible and perhaps lethal misidentification).

[b:A Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants: Eastern and Central North America|378203|A Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants Eastern and Central North America|Lee Peterson|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1174311446s/378203.jpg|368038] contains both illustrations (line drawings) of the featured plants, as well as a section of colour photographs (colour plates). Personally, while I find the illustrations easier to discern and identify than the photographed plants on the colour plates, I would have preferred it, had the illustrations been done in colour, rather than simply in black and white line drawings. I also think that it would have been both interesting and fun, had the author included his own recipes for at least some of the featured wild plants. However, all in all, [b:A Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants: Eastern and Central North America|378203|A Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants Eastern and Central North America|Lee Peterson|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1174311446s/378203.jpg|368038] is a wonderful and informative field guide, both for budding harvesters of wild plants, as well as for individuals like me (who will not likely ever attempt to harvest edible wild plants in any large quantities, but find information on plants, botany and wild harvesting interesting and readable).

With more than 300 photos, this new edition shows how to identify more than 500 healing plants. Descriptive text includes information on where the plants are found, as well as their known medicinal uses. An index to medical topics, symbols next to plant descriptions, and organization of plants by colors all make this an essential guide to understanding the traditional medicinal uses of the plants around us. At a time when interest in herbs and natural medicine has never been higher, the second edition of this essential guide shows how to identify more than five hundred kinds of healing plants. More than three hundred new color photos illustrate their flowers, leaves, and fruits. The updated descriptive text includes information on where the plants are found as well as their known medicinal uses. An index to medical topics is helpful for quickly locating information on specific ailments, from asthma and headaches to colds and stomachaches. Symbols next to plant descriptions give readers a quick visual alert to plants that are poisonous or may cause allergic reactions. Organized by plant color for fast identification, this guide is an indispensable tool for understanding the traditional medicinal uses of the plants and herbs around us. ( )

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