This is the second edition of the Big Book of Herbs (Interweave Press 2000) which received an award for Excellence in Herbal Literature from the Herb Society of America. The new edition has the same format and text but with some additions and updates. Each of the 500 profiles provides information on growing identifying harvesting and preserving herbs. The entries also give the history of the plant and its uses in landscapes cooking and crafts. The majority of entries are accompanied by line drawings of the herb. There are also detailed chapters on herb cultivation propagation and growing conditions. About 20 percent of the volume contains Âselected references Â a number of which have been updated for this edition. The encyclopedia is definitely a scholarly reference source for botanists but it will also be of interest to the weekend gardener. A recommended purchase for horticulture collections and especially libraries that do not own the first edition. --Christine Bulson
ÂThe book has been added to tightened up and well edited to become a modern equivalent of the classic herbal. If I could have only one herbal reference in my library without a doubt it would be The Encyclopedia of Herbs.Â
