The New American Herbal - A Book Review

I have always been fascinated by herbs.  I love to grow them, I use them both for cooking and medicinal purposes and I have a lot of books on the subject.  Although I have been studying herbs for several years I know I still have so much to learn on the subject.  I was so excited to receive The New American Herbal book.  This book is so jammed pack with information!  The pictures inside are absolutely gorgeous!  I seriously, just spent some time flipping through the book and enjoying the beautiful pictures.  

The book covers everything from herb basics, herbal preparations, garden projects, kitchen projects, specialty herbs and so much more.  There is an Herbs A to Z section that fills the majority of the book.  This section is a comprehensive guide that covers each herb beginning with Agrimony and ending with Yarrow.  The pages are indexed on the side which makes it easy to flip through and find the letter and herb you are looking for which comes in handy for quick references.  Each herb is described with plenty of information and pictures to give you apt knowledge on the individual herbs.

This book is going on my shelf of favorites and I know it is something that I will be referring to for years to come.  I can't wait to try some of the recipes that I found inside!  If you are a beginning herbalist or have been at it for years this book will be a beneficial addition to your library!
