If you had told me last year that I would be sitting here reviewing a book on herbs, I would have called you crazy. Me? Herbs? Nah. How things change. Last spring I planted some herbs in with my tomatoes. Just some normal kitchen herbs. I never would have imagined the pride I would have when using them in the kitchen to make some delicious meals. Anyway, growing the herbs got me interested in other herbs. So when I got the chance to review The New American Herbal by Stephen Orr through Blogging for Books, I jumped at it.
The New American Herbal is a great book for those interested in herbs and other plants. It is a huge book at 384 pages. It has recipes, a few projects, and some of the best information I've seen in a book like this. It contains information on usage, height, how to grow, whether the plant is safe or not. Plus the pictures are gorgeous.
I like this book not only because it will help me pick herbs for my garden, but it also helps me identify plants in yard that may or may not be safe to have around my pet.
I recommend this book to anyone wanting to know more about plants and herbs. It was a great read and so informative.
