May 15, 1963
Dedication
To Herbert S Allen

Book description
Suddenly we are faced with the cruel choice between chemical poisons taht pollute the environment on the one hand, and unchecked depredations of insects adn plant diseases on the other. NOw here is hte way to free us from that dilemma.

Many have remained unaware of the natural controls developed by modern science that are much safer and more effective than the deadly chemicals we are now using. Gardening Without Poisons shows us how natural protections against insect plagues and pestilence work, and how we can make these forces help us if we understand them. 

Now each of us can learn what to do - in our own gardens - to introduce safe and sound techniques to enjoy the benefits nature has to offer.
