I have a copy of FORAGING & FEASTING: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook
by Dina Falconi and am wondering if there is a to of overlap in plants covered in the book wild edibles! or if it covers mostly different flora. I have cherished my copy of Foraging & Feasting and am looking for something to add to it in my collection.

I got this one:

but i need to get me some more. I've been meaning to get these:

but i'd like some feedback on what people feel are the best or which might be considered redundant.

The Edible Wild Plants i have is great because it only goes into a few plants but does so in great detail. It's also great that it's printed on indestructible paper.

I've temporarily misplaced the wild foods 'cook book' I started with. But using it for a few meals helped build confidence to play with my own recepies. The dishes from my garden rarely have a name other than 'food', or 'dinner' and the same is now true of wild foods.
Samuel Thayer's books are fantastic. I wish I had started out with them. Very detailed, with descriptions, and several pictures of each plant. He specifies methods for preparation, which help in deciding what other dishes to include them in.
I cannot comment on Kallas' book as I have not seen it.

I LOVE AND RECOMMEND BOTH OF THESE BOOKS AND DUDES!

Just want to add, Erica, that overlap is a good thing! Helps make your IDs more certain and the prep and recipes are always a little different.
