`` Here is a treasure for city dwellers who have been missing abundant pleasures free for the finding. Silverman is articulate and affectionate as she tells of the great variety of beautiful and valuable plants--bittersweet to yarrow--which grow wild in urban areas. This is a book to lift the heart, even if approached from a purely practical standpoint,'' commended PW. (Sept.)

Includes information on freezing, storage and preservation, and recipes for breads, teas, salads, and cosmetics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
