Wild Berries of the West

The above review is the second review for this book, Wild Berries of the West; the first review, by Kim Hummer, appeared in the May/June 2002 issue. But in his evaluation of this book, Lon Rombaugh's comments revealed a sufficiently different take on its content that it seemed they might be of value to readers who are interested in such material. Incidentally, both reviewers of this book hail from Oregon. -Editor
