I bought this book not to long ago. It was so good, I actually gave my first copy to my dad (it was a little bit bent), and I bought an extra two copies for myself. Fantastic pictures are the key feature of this book, and its also a good reference guide to specific health conditions.

1000+ plants covering most common edible wild plants and herbs, edible common garden plants, common plants found in the desert, grasses, rainforest and tropical plants, poisonous plants, medicinal plants.

2500 detailed bright full color images.


Sections of this book include daisy like plants, dandelion like plants, umbrella flowers (parsley, carrot, poison hemlock, joe pye weed, valerian etc...), edible flowers (periwinkle, violets, dames rocket, chrysanthemums, lavender, etc), herbs (including aster, lemon verbena, mint, bermagot, basil, etc...), berries(blackberry, currants, gooseberry, autumn olive, grape, etc...), trees (apple, service berry, cherry, almond, etc...), poisonous plants (about 250 poisonous plants listed and their corresponding photographs),

Nice marketing. Kinda looks like the Readers' Digest version. What's the selling price?

I think what Deane is trying to say is that this forum and connected website is the non-readers digest 'full' version of the story on wild edibles  ;).

The layout looked Readers' Digestesque to me. I was not making an editorial comment per se. It should sell well.

Looks interesting. A 'cliff notes' version may be good for initial identification of a plant. Then, for further research, one just comes to a site like Eat the Weeds.  ;D

What is also noted in the book is your eattheweeds.com website,  Mr. Green Deane.



Markus has a list of references for further information if a person was to continue further into edible wild plants.

Thanks for letting me know. I suspected so when he mentioned Begonias.

Bigfoot I think I saw your rewiew on Amazon  ;D 'bigfoot12' was one of the reviewers!... Hopefully I can get my hands on one before they sell out!
Looks real cool, and though American and specifically NC plants are my biggest useability-wise interest right now, it would be nice to know some of the basics in other countries too.

I watched a few of his other videos, and a few in German. The dude seems cool. But very 'on'. He kind of reminds me of the Tony Robbins of the foraging world. Not that it's a good or bad thing, it's just what it brought to my mind. Motivational speaker + plants = Markus Rothkranz.
