Interesting to read, even if I never put anything into practice

I have a friend who comes from a rural area of Eastern Europe. I remember one conversation where she laughed herself silly because I told her about an old student job I had as a mushroom picker (in huts) and said I always bought my mushrooms from the supermarket. She couldn't believe it - she always picked her own from the woods. Why pay for something when you can get it for free? Personally, I couldn't think of anything more frightening than trying to pick my own when I could as easily pick something that would kill me as provide a tasty meal. We agreed to differ. This was as far as my thoughts on foraging went. When I saw this book, I automatically thought of her... and decided to give it a read. It is a very interesting book, with a wealth of information to help with getting started in foraging. I have to say that for myself I am still not entirely convinced, but I did find the sections on medicinal plants very interesting. I envy her the confidence to connect with the natural world, and perhaps live a little more the way nature intended, but you'll still find me cruising the vegetable isle in the supermarket!
