The entire first two-thirds of this book reads like a textbook. But the last part has Case Studies, that offer sample plant guilds for use by the casual gardener.

One reviewer questioned the inclusion of the Poisonous Plant Guild. While I have no pla...more

This is a great teen crossover non-fiction title. Reading it as an adult, I enjoyed the fast pace and the gripping way history of the poor was contrasted with the luxury of the Russian Royals. Full of diaries entries, eye-witness accounts and intimat...more
