Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent book hardcover and a real tool for anybody interested in survival or just to make sure those pretty red berries won't kill you. I love it and am making good progress reading it and taking notes and pictures I can carry hiking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Information (as you would expect from Rodale Press) 13 Jan. 2006
By Virginia Allain - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Quite useful! I love the sample gardens (knot garden, informal garden, kitchen garden). The book is a hefty 600+ pages so there's a lot of information here.

There are 267 pages covering an encyclopedia of herbs from Aconite to Yerba Santa. Each plant has a page or more with a mix of history, planting care, and uses. The plant photos are in black and white.

I believe a new edition of this is available with more illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Only Source You Need 13 Sept. 2014

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Learning to cook with and flavor foods with herbs and spices can be daunting to the novice cook but this guide is a great resource to overcome any handicap in the kitchen. I've used this book to start an extensive herb garden and have successfully (and hopefully permanently) incorporated herbs into many of staple dishes. I highly recommend!
