Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Thomas J. Elpel had the rare opportunity as a child to spend hundreds of hours with his grandmother. Together they explored the hills and meadows near Virginia City, Montana, collecting herbs, looking for arrowheads, and watching wildlife. Tom has shared this passion for the natural world by writing books, teaching wilderness survival skill, and found Green University LLC.

I highly recommend this book to both lay and professional people who work with plants.
So far it has allowed me to teach my kids (3 and 5) more about plants than I learned in 25 years! I love this book.
I appreciate the Medicinal Properties of Plants section which has enough detail for a chemist but is understandable to the layperson as well. The entire book is written like that; professional or layperson will get a profound lesson. Its like an entire course on wild plants but written in a reference manual style with a very personal touch.
This has given me a level of confidence I have always desired. Any human being should be given a copy of this book at birth! This should be in every library and taught in every school. If animals could read I would recommend it to them to. Peace
systematically than the typical "field guide." It concentrates on getting
you started into the right family with identification, and also listing
some of the notable and edible plants in each genus.
It lists edibility, but given that you don't really have a solid identification
of the plant, I wouldn't eat something based on it. He does at least list
the source of the edibility info in parenthesis. And he's pulled info from
5 or more sources.
I thought the intro and evolution of plants section in the beginning as well
as the half dozen most common families section in the front was good, succinct
and well written. There is a slightly confusing dichotomy key in the front too.
The bulk of the guide is an overview of each family, generally one (or one subfamily)
per page that gives a good information on the characteristics of the family and its
Illustrations look like they're from Britton and Brown, with lots of notes
added. For instance, there is a black and white line drawing and arrows pointing
out "3 stamens, 2 carpals, etc"
Text is slightly Montana-centric, but not overbearingly so.
Overall, a great intro to plants in 200 pages.
