Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
An excellent reference on the legend, history, culture, and use of popular herbs. Since it has few color photographs, this is a good companion to The Random House Book of Herbs (above), which has many more pictures but far less information. (LJ 11/15/87) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

I have used this book for years.  Whenever I start a new aspect of something herbal (Cooking, growing, harvesting, etc.) this is the book I keep coming back to.  The only problem I had with it is the the pages came away from the binding, so it is literally falling apart.  I still use it faithfully though and am looking at purchasing a new copy.  I cannot recommend this book enough.  Just love it.
