I came across your book 12 years ago while taking a wilderness skills course, and it has been one of my favorite guides as I dig every deeper into my local flora. Thank you for writing such an easy-to-understand botany book! I can't wait to start introducing my toddler to the finer points of plant identification (he brought his father some pineapple weed from the driveway the other day, told him its name, and said that it was good for toothaches - I don't think I've ever been more pleased in my parenting skills), and your book is going to be top of the list for curriculum...

Welcome to permies!

So I ran the winner picker app in the forum software and we have 2 winners.

Louis Laframboise
and
Michael Newby

Congratulations Louis and Michael!

I sent you an email to ask for the email address of the person that first referred you to Permies.com. That person (if qualified) will also get a copy of the book and a permies care package.

Woo-Hoo! One book I'll be able to check off my list a little earlier.
