Comments: From Books in Print To Pamela Jones, the wild plants we call weeds -- far from being the scourges of the garden -- are among naturešs most generous, useful gifts, and in this book, she conveys not only her knowledge of them but her affection as well. Just Weeds covers 30 of the most common wild plants of North America: their botanical and everyday names, recognizable features, habitat, history, myths and practical applications -- medicinal, culinary and cosmetic. Each wild plant is illustrated by a beautiful color drawing, accompanied by vital statistics and several pages of fascinating stories and information. A fascinating book about a seemingly commonplace subject.
