This is a VERY useful book, if you are actually going to head out on foraging expeditions. I'm hoping to do this, but this book is so full of much that I'm intimidated and just a bit nervous that I'll accidentally pick a psychedelic mushroom and go on a trip I didn't plan for. I read through the ebook version, but would love my own printed copy to take out in the off-grid jungles of Hamilton, Ontario.
