I have to admit, when I ordered "The New American Herbal" to review, I had no idea it was this comprehensive. I have a lot of respect for people who take the time to do their research prior to publishing, and this author gets a standing ovation. This is not simply a reference for wanna-be gourmet chefs, but a great cornerstone for someone wishing to plant herbs for medicinal and culinary value. It took me days to wade through all the information, yet the reading was pleasant, and left me feeling like I'd gone through a story book and not an herbal encyclopedia. Highly recommended!
