A list of plants in the very beginning of the book is arranged by season and habitat so a certain part of the plant that is available at that time is highlighted as edible. After that are plant profiles for over 100 edible plants in the Northeastern United States. I would definitely make sure you bulk up on identification of any plant you are going to eat before using this book as your definitive guide. There are identification sections describing each plant, however you would have to know some botany terms to use effectively. Pictures are included, but every plant may not look like that. The sections that are a lot more useful are how to harvest the edible part of the plant, when to harvest, and how to eat and preserve. I was also impressed with the variety of plants in this book that I don't often see elsewhere such as basswood, black nightshade, cattail, garlic mustard, juneberry, mugwart, mulberries (my favorite) and pineappleweed.
