Présentation de l'éditeur

For untold thousands of years, human beings have thrived on the nutritional and medicinal wealth of the plant life in the natural world. In these fascinating, wide-ranging, wonderfully informative stories, Tom Brown--director of the world-famous Tracking, Nature, and Wilderness Survival School--tells all about the uncommon benefits of the common trees, shrubs, flowers, and other plants we find all around us. This indispensible guide includes information on:

How to use every part of the plant--leaves, flowers, bark, bulbs, and roots

Where to find useful plants, and the best time of the year and stages of growth to harvest them

How to prepare delicious food dishes, soups, breads and teas from the riches of the great outdoors

An incredible range of experience-proven medicinal uses to treat headaches, burns, digestive disorders, skin problems, and a host of other maladies

Many people think that survivalists and herbalists are not unlike a swarm of locusts swooping down on the landscape and devouring everything. Lire la première page

An unusual plant guide 8 septembre 2004
Par M. Coppedge - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book differs greatly from other edible-plant guides. First, it has no pictures of plants: neither drawings, nor illustrations or photographs. If you want to use this guide, you definitely need a second book that shows what the plants look like. Second, it is not about a technical description of plants but about their spiritual value. The author discusses every plant according to its "personality," which is a detailed account of his personal experience with the plant, childhood memories related to the plant, and teachings he got from an Apache elder. We then learn how the plant can be used as food and as medicine. In either case, the author shows clearly how the plant should be harvested, cooked, eaten, stored, prepared and prescribed. He also points to possible dangers if a particular plant can be easily confused with a toxic plant, or when a plant could trigger reactions in allergic people.

Although the spiritual approach may not appeal to everyone, this book is quite informative and in many ways better than the purely descriptive guides. It concentrates on about 45 plants you will find in meadows, fields, and (if you like weeds) in your backyard.

Plant information not found elsewhere 17 janvier 2001
Par Doug Kramer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
In this Tom Brown, Jr. Field Guide, the reader is connected to plants in ways not explored in more scientific field guides. Mr. Brown shares stories, feelings and energies connected to various plants. In addition, there are medicinal and edible uses you WILL NOT find in other guides. These uses come from the Native American traditions so thoroughly explored by Grandfather Stalking Wolf and Tom Brown, Jr. himself. If you are a wild plant enthusiast, add this book to your library. If you have read Tom Brown, don't pass this one up.

Great for the info it has, but not an identification and classification book 18 février 2006
Par Richard A. Hicks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is written from the standpoint of someone who needs to use plants either for survival or bush medicine. It is not the best or most accurate filed guide for identifying or classifying plants. I found it best to use this book in conjunction with an Audubon field guide. The Audubon filed guide will give you a picture and a better description of the plant that you are looking for, Tom Brown's book tells you what to do with the plant when you find it.

Tom browns book is the more important part of this equation, what good is knowing what a plant looks like without knowing what it is used for? So, I recommend using a different field guide for finding a certain plant, and then using Tom Brown's guide and practice making the medicinal applications and teas that he has. This book was not designed to take the place of a standard photographic field guide. It is designed to be used first in conjunction with a standard field guide until you know the plant and can identify it, then the illustrations and such are only to jog your memory in the field if you are looking for a certain remedy plant but its been a while since you messed with it.

This book is the definition of "false advertisement." 20 février 2011
Par R. Barrilli - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Amazing. The title of the book says "Tom Brown's Field Guide - Wild Edible and Medicinal Plants." However, when the reader makes it to page 44 you find:

"This book is NOT A FIELD GUIDE to the identification of wild edible and medicinal plants."

No, I'm not making that up. The back cover says "Fully illustrated..." but there are only 13 sketches in the book. Some sketches have nothing to do with plant identification and most look like the product of a bad acid trip. The first part of the book is basically an account of the author's interactions with indians and why we should respect the "Earth Mother." He even tells about killing his first deer with a bone knife on a stick. I thought that fit perfectly into a book I thought would show me how to identify plants.

The beginning of the second paragraph on page 44 drives home the point that if you are looking for a FIELD GUIDE, look somewhere else.

"Use this book as a back-up to your field identification guides. My ambition is to bring the reader or
student survivalist closer to an intimate understanding of our plant brothers."

From here the book goes on to list 44 different plants. Each plant has a brief description then talks about the plants "personality", food and medicinal uses. This information is told through a story of how the author came to know and interact with these plants.

I'm not opposed to the teaching of respect for all life on Earth. I respect that the author wants to drive that point home. But I wanted a field guide. The title clearly says field guide and I feel duped. That is not to say this book has no redeeming value (hence the 2 stars), but I am greatly disappointed with this purchase.

Hope this review helps. Now...I'm off to find a real field guide!

Tom Brown's is different 29 mars 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This one, in particular, is kind of like reading the earliest Tom Robbins novels (Another Roadside attraction, etc.). Beyond nostalgia, this is a wonderful book - a little too large and poorly illustrated to carry CARELESSLY into the woods - yet very useful and unique. Tom gives us a pre-New Age understanding of his plant friends - the ones we might most need or want to know - while spinning sentimental and spiritual threads that may help bind us to our use of this new knowledge. Collect the Peterson's and indepth holistic herbals, but don't pass up on Tom's.
