[Sca-cooks] Favorite Herb Books

There are two books related to natural dyeing that I'd strongly recommend,
vis-a-vis using garden plants or wild finds.  The first is "A Dyer's
Garden," by Rita Buchanan, and the second is "Wild Color" by Jenny Dean.  If
you can only get one, go for "Wild Color," as it's more comprehensive
(although slightly less plant-your-own oriented).
My garden/cooking herb books I've pretty much all gotten as remainders at a
local used/second bookstore, so I'd recommend you try the one in your
neighborhood.  Barnes and Noble does a lot of seasonal/inexpensive
hobby/gardening books, too, IIRC.

> I've been reading a great herb book which has some detailed info on the
particular herbs.  I'd like to learn about more different herbs though and
more specifics on using them.  Does anyone have recommendations?  I am
interested in cooking uses, medical uses, and other useful functions such as
making dyes.
