Review:  This exceedingly practical and easy-to-read book presents each plant’s description, habitat, picking and processing info, and the effects and uses of the plant.  When appropriate, Kress highlights “look-alike” plants.  Practical Herbs is loaded with tips, recipes and photos taken by Kress.
