The book has some good information, some not found elsewhere. It doesn't seem to be from personal experience, but from research. Although it has lovely photos, they really focus on the flowers, many with little or no leaf showing. There are descriptions but not drawings or photos of all the plant parts needed to identify all of the plants, so supplemental field guides may be needed. Also uses descriptions of ranges that seem incomplete- sometimes citing whole states/provinces which quite often isn't true based on varied terrains. Overall a good book and a good addition to a field guide collection. I wouldn't recommend it to stand alone.

Living in Idaho, most of these plants are native to my area. Not all but most. This is my favorite book to take with me on hikes or backpacking trips, lets me identify so many flowers and shrubs that I never knew could do things to the human body.

I highly recommend this book to anyone in the rocky area who wants to learn more about the plants in the area. It's great and easy to read, even for people with little to no plant knowledge! The bright colored pages make it SUPER easy to identify, plus the book will tell you if two plants look similar and how to differentiate the two.

Don't buy this expecting it to be a how-to guide. It contains interesting information on historical and current uses for the plants, but it's information on identification, preparation, and usage of plants is lacking quite a bit. The first sentence in the intro of the book says it's not a how-to book, yet that is not including in the Amazon product description. The descriptions of the plants are barely enough to help identify them in the wild, and I would not feel confident using this book as a reference when deciding whether something I find will harm me or help me.

During a 3.5 week long camping adventure all over Colorado, this book as served me well in identifying plants and guiding my foraging efforts. It has certainly helped me connect deeper to my camping experiences and I will take this with me on all my hikes, backpacking and camping trips from now on.

I had the opportunity to forage some prickly red currants, oregon grapes, bearberries/manzanitas, canadian buffalo berries (aka. soapberries), and rose hips. I also found common plantain and tried thistle buds for the first time.

I won't go into great detail because the reviews already do a really good job of it. I was looking for a reference for hiking and fishing to augment my emergency survival kit and increase my knowledge. More of a "just in case" rather than "I intend to do serious foraging". The book is well organized and the pictures are good, in some instances it tells you how to improve the taste and what the nutritional value is. I believe I should have no problems identifying the plants based upon the photos in this book and look forward to expiramenting with some of the plants on future hiking and fishing outings though I won't try to gather a thanksgiving feast unless I find myself stuck somewhere. I thought I would use this book to get started then buy a larger reference to stay at the house to study up on while using this one as my field book but now I don't think I will need a second book for my needs, someone who is doing serious foraging or medicinal uses on a regular basis may enjoy a more informative book. The book has almost plasticized pages which should be quite durable, although it is surprisingly heavy for it's small size, if you are a minimalist hiker maybe this is better to study at home, for me it will become a item in my backpack once I read it. Regardless of your needs this is probably the book to start with.

Bought this for my husband as we have been talking about survival stuff for a few years, Thanx to Naked and Afraid :) Its easy to read and the descriptions are great. My 7 year old loves to find plants when we are camping and looking them up and trying to find them in this book. We live In Montana and so far we have found a few of these in our camp spot. I would recommend this book to anyone who wanted to explore their area plants.

for a small book its good, wish the pictures can show more than one view of the plant such in it first growing faze to maturity as I find it hard to distinguish some plants by there pictures, and could use a few more to help narrow down the options of what I am looking at
I bought this wanting to learn about plants in my area. Lets just say I learned a ton more then what I wanted to learn. I packed this baby in my Bug Out bag and didn't even need to put it in a plastic bag because of the cover and what the pages are made out of, WATER PROOF!!! Please buy this, it will teach you so so much important information on what you can eat, how to eat it, medical and they even make sure you know what plant it is by the full color pictures of the plants/trees. Hats off to the company for putting this out to us. WORTH EVERY PENNY, NOW BUY IT AND LEARN LIKE I DID.
