"The third edition of Tom’s guide, Wild Plants of Maine, is truly amazing. I have his earlier editions, and he added and updated a lot in this new edition. I particularly love those plants Tom calls nibbles, the plants you can nibble on as you hike or hunt through the woods. We’ll never go hungry while hunting again!"
--George Smith, author, journalist, former editor of The Maine Sportsman.
