Summary

From Permanent Publications:

"An inspirational journey around the world, looking at Stephen’s top 80 perennial leafy green vegetables. There are stories of the wild foraging traditions of indigenous people in all continents: from the Maori of New Zealand, the rich traditions of the Mediterranean people, high altitude foods with the Sherpas in the Himalayas and the wild aquatic plant that sustained Native American tribes with a myriad of foodstuffs and other products."

I'm a bit late with this, as ever, but there's also an e-book edition.

If you go to the page, there's also a download link for a pdf sample, which I can highly recommend!

I give this book 10 out of 10 acorns....so good!  One of the best in my collection.  The "80 Plants" is a bit misleading as Stephen actually packs in hundreds of edible species.  It's an amazing book for anyone who loves perennial landscaping/agriculture.
 
That's a very big dog. I think I want to go home now and hug this tiny ad:
