I give this book 8 out of 10 acorns.

Sergei has written a well thought out introductory book about foraging for wild edibles. He includes color pictures and descriptions of 60 edible plants and 67 fun and tasty recipies.
I am looking forward to putting his knowlege to work in the mountains of Wyoming.

Thank you for sharing this! When I was a park ranger and outdoor educator in the NW I always thought teaching wild edibles was one of the best ways to build connections to the natural world so it would be valued and treated with respect. I would even use a scavenger hunt with a similar setup to the layout in the video, but after a minute of being able to "take a mental picture," I would cover up the plants and kids would go find (after learning how to do so respectfully) as many matches to the plants on the sheet that they could and lay them out for themselves to see how many they could ID. It was the best way I have ever learned or taught plants because it really embeds the little subtle shapes and characteristics in your brain. Unfortunately, ignorance by supervisors and parents has led to edibles being seen as too dangerous to teach (apparently this generation is too dumb to survive), even though with a reasonable class size and basic instructions you can teach it more safely than any of the kids' bus ride to camp. Anyhow, wild edibles could save the world and thank you for sharing!
