"Mikaela Cannon provides information for the plants and mushrooms she forages, based on meticulous research and – most importantly – her own experiences. For her, the book reflects a compellingly personal journey, filled with the joy of “finding nourishment from the land". 
Her enthusiasm is infectious; you want to participate in her world."
