God’s Wild Herbs by Dennis Ellingson,
Published by Cladach Publishing
Since our pets will often eat outdoor plants, I like to read about those that are edible as well as those that are harmful to pets. This book covers those that are edible. God’s Wild Herbs by Dennis Ellingson is a wonderful guide to 121 different wild plants that can be found throughout the United States. I was pleasantly surprised as I read this book how many of the plants I recognized because I had been pulling them out of my garden as weeds! I also saw some varieties of plants that I purchased in my local nursery, such as the Yarrow flower, and never knew that they were edible.  You can order this book directly from the publisher at www.cladach.com

Soon after retired silent-screen sta, Eva Dupree learns that she might be terminal, she travels to Eureka Springs, Arkansas, with her dead husband's cat and her personal maid, Rose. When Eva starts to hear and see strange things, she can't be sure whether it's the effects of Baker’s unorthodox "cure" or her disease.
