Product description

Weeds are botanical thugs, but they have always been essential to our lives. They were the first crops and medicines and they inspired Velcro. They adorn weddings and foliate the most derelict urban sites. With the verve and historical breadth of Michael Pollan, acclaimed nature writer Richard Mabey delivers a provocative defense of the plants we love to hate.

Review quote

"Weeds may seem a soft subject for a book. Not so in the hands of Richard Mabey.... Mabey's book... suggests that weeds may, in fact, have made civilization possible--and, with climate change, may keep the planet alive."--Financial Times
