  Brillient. Such an eye opener to our beginnings and development. The book manages to pull the reader into those ancient times. We really get a sense of being physically, cognitively and emotionally related to our own ancestors. We feel their learning process is our learning process. Packed full essential bushcraft information and knowledge.

  This is essential reading for any Outdoors person. I thought I knew quite a bit about which plants that were edible and which weren't but this book has really opened my eyes. Oh, and the autographed fly leaf just makes it that extra bit special to take out in the woods.

  The book 'Wild Food' is a practical tool for anyone with an interest for the lost knowledge of the natural resources in our environment. The beautiful illustrations are very helpful for understanding better the very complex world of the multiple varieties of plants.

  Like the TV series, a lovely 2-hander of Ray and Douglas. Amazing photos and fascinating (social?) history, together with enough detail to try for yourself. Will keep outdoors folk busily quiet indoors for a while, and represents very good value for money. Absolutely NOT a coffee table book!

  I want to take this opportunity to thank Ray and Gordon for writing Wild Food. My best friend Gerard gave the book for my fortieth birthday almost three years ago. In the front of the book he wrote: 'After 20 years Fast Food in the Ardennes it is now time for the real thing.' What an asset this book. Truly a gift from a friend. At first I thought that only plants that grow in England would be the subject of this book, but while studying the book and the plants therein I found out that most of them also grow on the European continent and far beyond. This book has clearly also has its value to bushcrafters that do not live in the United Kingdom. After several weeks of studying and reading I noticed that I began to recognize families of plants and individual plants and that I paid more attention to the things that were growing around me. It is clear to me that I am a student of Woodlore for life as I will continue to learn and discover about Wild Foods and Bushcraft. The true bush crafter for that matter will never stop learning. The Wild Food DVD is an asset on its own and I watch it regularly. It is a way to make the words of the book come to life. And see different techniques of gathering and processing firsthand. It's nice to Ray and Gordon in their role as hunter-gatherers and see them working together. Ray and Gordon, and thanks again for writing this master piece, it has changed my view on my surroundings forever.
