"Edible Wild Plants of the Carolinas is easy to read and full of lesser-known and underappreciated edible species of plants, along with novel uses of them for food and drink."--Mac H. Alford, University of Southern Mississippi
"I thoroughly enjoyed the treatments of each plant and the understated humor sprinkled throughout. The book even helped me generate a few ethnobotany research questions for my students to investigate! This fascinating book will be of interest to casual readers, beginning botanists, and professionals alike."--Jay Bolin, Catawba College
