This is an excellent book for identifying, growing, cooking, and healing with herbs. There are, of course, a plethora of books about herbs, but this one excels because:

1. It's simple and efficient. Each herb has its own section with picture and explanation for health, garden, and food.

2. It's colorful. Other books have driven me crazy with little or no illustrations. Here, there are color photographs, sometimes showing both the way the herb looks while growing and the way it looks when drying or being prepared for food.

3. It's practical. Along with the section on each herb, there is also a section showing exactly how to grow an herbal garden, with several accompanying designs for the garden. There is also a chapter on using herbs, such as how to dry them or use them in holiday decorations.

After reading this, I have already decided to take an un-used garden area and turn it into an herbal knot design, thanks to this book. Extremely helpful and extremely useful.
