About this deal

The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. This book is a great starting point for beginners like us who have no idea what grows when or what is edible. I also find it pretty interesting as a historian looking into prehistoric hunter-gatherers of Britain. I enjoyed being reminded that "the berry at the tip of the stalk is the first to ripen and is the sweetest and fattest of all.

But it's also useful to the culinary minded looking for some different ingredients, and providing a number of recipes.

First published in 1972, this updated edition of Richard Mabey's cult bestseller has been revised to reflect the ever-increasing eco-awareness and popular interest in finding different, and more natural, sources of food.
