This is a wonderful piece of work for those that want to open themselves up to the stories behind many of the herbs we are surrounded by. I just leave it open to a new herb everyday as I work through the various plants growing in my neighborhood. The recipes are great too. I've read a multitude of herbal books over the years and this is now one of my top five.
