Summary "Is it good to eat?" Anyone who has asked or been asked this question about some of our wild plants will find this book a fascinating source of answers. For it is not only accurate and complete, but is also rich in knowledge of the history of these plants and the ways in which they have been put to human use. The book covers all of the edible flowering plants and ferns, plus the important mushrooms, seaweeds and lichens growing wild east of the Great Plains and north of Peninsular Florida.
