Edible plants of America, common weeds, roadside and woodland flowers, where they were found and how they were prepared, along with legends surrounding some of them, and how they may be adopted for modern use. A blend of scientific material and fanciful legend makes this pleasant reading for the nature lover, ten, eleven and up. The camper -- or boy or girl scout -- may find this book a useful adjunct to woodcraft. Neleno Cartor's illustrations are accurate and sensitive black and white, with some color. Older reading level and interest level than -- First the Flower. Then the Fruit.
