I received this as an ARC from the publisher. Thank you.

This book is a good first entry into foraging around the Great Lakes. It does include photos of the plants mentioned both “safe” and poisonous. If you are allergic to ragweed, some of the plants mentioned in this book won’t be safe.

Adventurous readers can even try some of the recipes listed in the back of from their foraged goodies.

Something I was taught a long time ago, and the author reinforces it, if you don’t know what it is DON’T EAT IT. There are berries out there that look like familiar ones, but they can make you very sick and possibly kill you. Attend classes or spend time…

Purchased book thru Amazon. Great resource book but the book is not complete. The book received had 168 pages and the book index states it has 196 pages. The whole section About Winter foraging was Left out.
