Hey I love this book. There's always nifty food for herby thought in his books.

And having this and the Old World volume together is just a great pair of herbal references to have.

You don't actually read this book, but pouring over the pages is well worth the time of a plant lover. This is a classic reference for medicinal plants.

Contained significantly less herbs of interest than the other herbals I've read. I realize the scope of the book is limited, I wasn't expecting it to be limited as much as it was.
