This is by far my most useful and favourite book, which i originally bought when i first became stunned by my uncles knowledge of wild food, and after many episodes of ray mears i persuaded myself to by a book on foraging.

You can get this whole book for £4.99. (or £2.93 on good ol' Amazon) Richard Mabey's 'Food For Free' is a little Collins gem pocket book guide to edible stuff growing wild in the British Isles.
