Additional information from the publisher:

This book is not intended as a "how-to" guide for eating wild plants.  No plant or plant extract should be consumed unless you are certain of its identity and toxicity and of your personal potential for allergic reactions.  Self-medication with herbal medicines is unwise, and wild foods should always be used with caution and with expert advice.
