Review
"Gary Lincoff shows readers how to find fiddlehead ferns, rose hips, beach plums, bee balm and more, whether foraging in the urban jungle or in the woods. Readers will also learn about fellow foragers—experts, folk healers, hobbyists, and novices—who collect wild things and are learning new things to do with them every day. The book includes essential tips on where to look for native plants, and how to really know the difference between edibles and toxic look-alikes.“
