One of my biggest weaknesses in bushcrafting has always been my ability to identify plants. Since my brother was an environmental sciences major, I had to hit him up for some help. His recommendation as a great start? This book:Not only does this book have color pictures of each plant, but it also makes it easy to identify the plants. The only problem I have had was with breaking down the specific parts of the plant to help me find the right one. He is looking for another book to help get me up to speed on identifying the specific plant parts and structures so that I can more quickly find right page. When I get that one from him, I will add it for everyone. Until then, I definitely recommend this book and suggest you pick it up if you live in this area.
