Back cover copy

Having written the enormously popular Stalking the Wild Asparagus and Stalking the Blue-Eyed Scallop, Euell Gibbons turned his attention to the wealth of herbs that grow wild throughout North America. Combining the skills he learned as a boy with Indian lore and his years of patient experimentation, he wrote this book that others might enjoy the benefits of our little-known natural heritage.

Review quote

""How will the librarian classify this wise and delightful book that is, of course, about herbs and plants but with such a difference that the gardener, the cook, the chemist, the botanist, and the experimental scientist will find it rewarding reading? ...Books by this 'stalker' should find a place in all general collections."
K.T.Willis, Library Journal"
