5 Stars. I bought this book for research purposes, and found useful information, exactly what I was looking for, on almost every page. The pictures provided help tremendously when it comes to identifying the plants. There is information on where the plants grow naturally, what effects they have on a person or animal if ingested, what to do for first aid if that happens, and also provides any medicinal uses the plant may have. Although it is a relatively short book, and I didn’t expect to find much in it that I was looking for, I was pleasantly surprised to find it was exactly what I was looking for. I’ll definitely check out the other books in this series because I was pleased with this one.
