The Sunset Western Garden Book has been a stand-by for gardeners in the Western states since its debut in 1954, so Sunset's Western Garden Book of Edibles had me at "hello." But if Sunset's reputation as the authority on Western-state gardening isn't enough to sway you, 300+ pages of full-color photos with updated, expanded, and user-friendly information on growing more than 190 varieties of edible berries, fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs, flowers, and tropical plants should do the trick.
