    Very good information folks and trust me, if something isn't worth buying I will be the first to tell you. I don't get any kickbacks from any gear I purchase.
    What are the book titles? I have one put out by the Missouri Conservation Department, but it only has black and white drawings, Wild Edibles of Missouri. It's OK, but I would really like to have a few more with better plant descriptions. Thanks.
