Published 2005 by Llewellyn Worldwide

This contains articles on growing and gathering herbs, culinary herbs, herbs for health, herbs for beauty, herb crafts and herb history, myth and magic. It has a moon chart for the year 2006 and a short article on the quarters and signs of the moon.

I have enjoyed this book immensely. Under each heading there are 3-6 artlcles. This is one of those books I have read from cover to cover. The articles I especially enjoyed were Traditional English Gardens and Cooking with Southwestern Herbs both by Chandra Moira Beal. There is also a section at the end of the book giving a bit of information about each writer.

What I did not like about to book is that no sources are listed. For all I know, the authors could have made this up off the top of their respective heads.

As a whole I like this book. I just know that the information should be verified in other sources before being used. If you are interested in herbs and gardening, this book is a good light read.
