I LOVE the illustrations in this book - I have a whole shelf of photo-illustrated because I thought they'd be better in the field, but 25 yrs of experience later, I'm much more satisfied with AJA's illustrations. The illustrations are big enough for my aging eyes to see the little details that distinguish between "look-alikes". So I trust this book more than the others - especially when I plan to eat what I pick. I also appreciate the level of description and detail. Can't go wrong with this book. And if you want to lug all the other books, be my guest!

An oldie but goodie! This book has extensive info on where plants are found, what parts to eat, and even how you can cook them. I thought that was the best part of the book in addition to its great color illustrations. Read full review
