Landscaping with Herbs
Landscaping with Herbs, by James Adams (Timberpress, 1987; $33), focuses on herbs as ornamentals in the garden, but it also includes a wealth of information on cultivation, culinary uses, folklore, and history. I especially like the color photos.
Insects on the Web
Like them or not, insects play a major role in almost every aspect of human culture. Insects on the Web offers incredible graphics and fascinating stories of insects and the roles they play in our lives. It covers cultural entomology, insect photography, educational resources, and links to other Web sites.
