"Have you ever looked for a true "pocket size" field guide just to find out it's not actually pocket size at all? Or perhaps you did and yet it's just a fold-out brochure with limited information or plant variety. This was just the case for me when I decided to create The Northwest Forager's Pocket Guide to Wild Edible Plants. It started back in 2013 and took me the better part of 4 years to photograph all the plants in their different stages throughout the seasons. I built the page structure from scratch, wrote, edited, wrote, edited, wrote and re-edited again until alas! A true pocket size field guide that comfortably fits in your shirt, coat or pant pocket and yet maintains the sustenance of a real book. Gift yourself, as well as a friend with this fun foragers guide. And of course, Happy Foraging!"

certainly not the most comprehensive book on the market. but holy crap is this a great little field guide! it covers pretty much everything a novice to intermediate forager would want to gather on a day hike! very detailed photos with accurate colors, good descriptions of characteristics, poisonous look-alikes (which is hard to find in books 3x as expensive as this!), and edible parts! I bought one for me and a friend!

Great little book, very compact, hits the basics of what you might want to grab if you're foraging for greens, a couple roots, or berries but don't want to bring a whole big guide. Helpfully includes some poison lookalikes for newbies like me. No mushrooms but I don't like mushrooms so that's ok!
