  2. This is a brilliant book. It contains a vast wealth of information locked in seasonal sections. Simply open the book to correct season and using plentiful clear illustrations, it will teach you techniques specific to the time in the year and show you what to do and what you can use around you in the wild. Unlike other books which leave you searching for the rare bark of some tree with out telling you you are four months too late, this book is very interesting and informative. It comes highly recommended.
