Review:

"If you have an interest as I do in identifying and knowing the use of Maine's native wild plants there is one resource that is indispensable: Tom Seymour's Wild Plants of Maine. This slim (fits easily in my day pack) volume beautifully illustrates those plants you are likely to come across walking in the fields, beaches and forests of Maine. Is that one with the red berries poisonous? Surprise! It may be a perfectly safe trail nibble."
--Howard Goldman, MD

"Tom is a wealth of knowledge and an accomplished storyteller. His words are thoughtful and thorough, and always leave the listener curious about the world around them. It's been a pleasure to work with Tom for many years, and his presence is a welcome resource in the Midcoast environmental education community."--Brett Willard, Merryspring Nature Center, Program Director

"Wild Plants of Maine, is a fascinating guide to finding, selecting, picking cooking and eating some of Maine's tastiest natural bounty, foods found in the woods, along the streams and in bogs."
William D. Bushnell, Maine book reviewer.

Tom's knowledge of the vegetation within the woods, waters and shores of the Pine Tree State are great. This book is a must have for anyone spending any amount of time in the outdoors, not only in Maine, but New England and the Maritimes as well.

I recommend this book whether you are interested in basic plant identification or you are an expert forager, this book makes a great companion. Charles Cannon, Park Ranger, Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands
