This is not a field guide for ‘identifying’ the plants. The line drawings by illustrator Evelyn Dean show an interesting style, but are not my cup of tea. Illustration detail is more arty than helpful to a person who does not already know the plants. Steve’s book is divided into “season” chapters which are further divided into plants found in different habitats. The Table of Contents is so vast as to be unhelpful – just go right to the index. The book ends with tips on how to work with wild foods in the kitchen and a whole chapter of intriguing recipes. Recommended as a part of a wild food library!
