Publisher Comments:

The soothing smell of lavender, rosemary's piney flavor, the bright colors of nasturtiums . . . herbs are wonderful things! In this handsome volume, Mary Preus provides a delightful entree into the world of herbs with detailed instructions on how to grow 50 of the most popular herbs and create an herbal lifestyle. Easy and delicious recipes, herbal crafts and gifts, landscaping with herbs, traditional and modern medicinal use, aromatherapy--it's all here in The Northwest Herb Lover's Handbook.

Book News Annotation:

Several chapters introduce herb-growing basics; planning and creating herb gardens of various types; harvesting and preserving herbs; and using herbs in cooking, healing, and crafts. The remainder of the volume provides superbly detailed coverage of 50 herbs and a month-by- month calendar of herb gardening in the Pacific Northwest.

A fantastic resource for those who would seek to use herbs in cooking or for medicinal use. Mary's tone is both conversational and informative and friendly; I feel that I spent a few hours with a vastly knowledgeable aunt, peered into her cupboards and had a cup of her mint tea. The photographs are both lovely and useful in identifying wild herbs in a garden or meadow, and the recipes are better than in most herb books. I only wish she could cover more herbs and present many more recipes for tinctures and teas and the like.
