I was absolutely delighted to get this book and when it came in the mail I was not at all disappointed, in fact, if anything this book exceeded my expectations. This book is everything one would want in an herbal book and more. It is filled with lush photographs that clearly show what the herb looks like and it intermittently has recipes that include some of the various herbs that look not only delicious but incredibly fun to make.
I just love the amount of detail that Mr. Orr includes on each and every herb he has selected to put in the book. He goes to great lengths on each of them, including such things as origins, safety (very important!!), season, how to grow and other names and types. The little blurb he writes on each herb is interesting and informative.
I cannot recommend this book enough and think it makes a great additions to any one who is interested in herbs.
I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
