    1. Good book! Very complete. The best part about this book is that it mentions how the First Nations of North America used and prepared the plants. There isn't much mention of how one can include the plants in a modern diet or recipe. If you are an experienced forager, there is no need for recipes, only safe preparation methods are required. Creativity is key!The plant descriptions are pretty good, but it definitely isn't a field guide. Most of the plants in this book have a disclaimer mentioning t [...]

    2. Perfect for learning more about edible foods in the Rockies. I love that right on the back cover is an index for the five different families of plant this book is split up into (trees, shsrubs, herbs, mosses, poisonous). Each plant comes with a photo, description, location, edibility, and medicinal uses. Plants that you should be wary of using, or that are common allergens, are clearly marked and given a description of why.

    3. Not a traditional permaculture book, but one that I can use as a reference for what is native to my region. The dearth of high calorie plants does explain the traditional hunter/gatherer lifestyle of the first nations population in Colorado. Lots of interesting plants listed.

    4. Though the information on the use of herbs is nowhere as complete or detailed as, say, Michael Moore's books, the photos in this book are far superior to any I've seen making it incredibly helpful for identifying plants in the field.

    5. This book is a real help when sorting out which berries are good to eat, I find it very helpful, I take it with me all the time when hiking.

    6. Great book of the pictures helpful for basic understanding of plants locally and like that it's grouped by plant family
