The only reason I don't give the book 10 acorns is really selfishness on my part - I want more! As mentioned above, a pocket friendly field guide would be very handy. Maybe an insert that comes with the book that covered the info presented in part one of the book, which consists mainly of the keys used in pattern recognition as well as general plant part descriptions that you need to understand to be able to use the keys. The other thing that I would really like to see is the addition of more information about uses of the plants. While I enjoyed the information presented about the traditional medicinal and dietary uses of many of the plants, as a permaculture enthusiast (fanatic) it would be great to see things like whether a plant was a known dynamic accumulator or could be used to make foliar sprays, things of that nature.
