I give this book 7 out of 10 acorns.
Photos of the plants, recipes for their preparation, edible and medicinal uses I give 9. I don't think you'll get the wrong plant with the information provided. And (per the author) the plants catalogued occur near human habitation on all continents.

The author walks through the wilds from Durango Colorado to Telluride Colorado, taking several days, and eating only what she finds along the way. If you are unfamiliar with the geography of that particular terrain, just take a deep breath and know this is no small physical feat, there is some adventure, some walking the talk, by a woman with phenomenal competence and self reliance.

The rest of the book, I give 4. The book needed to be edited for language use and for accurate use of botanical terms.
