Book Description

January 1, 2003 1880308215 978-1880308219
This book tells the story of kudzu in America, about our entangled love and hate for this alien vine, and its impact upon our culture.

The author has thoroughly researched the subject and presents a comprehensive analysis of the serious environmental problem kudzu vine is causing in America.

She advocates solving this problem by using kudzu as a raw material for useful consumer products as they do in Japan and other Asian countries. These uses are documented with facts and photographs.

Kudzu in America is an excellent reference book, and illustrated with 150 photographs. The 8 1/2 x 11 inch format accommodates large, detailed photographs.

5.0 out of 5 stars a fan of all plants usefull April 6, 2003
I found "KUDZU in America" to be a delightful, fun and fast read. The challenge is that Kudzu is here, available, and above all is useful for making many products should not be ignored. That this plant can (and should) be viewed as an abundant potential *resource* -Not- simply as a pest, will be difficult for most to see. There is no 'silver bullet' quick fix, and it appears that utilizing Kudzu to it's fullest extent is fairly labor intensive. But I agree with the author that *harvesting* and using Kudzu (Many examples are listed) makes so much more sense, and since other countries do, Americans should be able to as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational and entertaining April 1, 2003
All the pictures in this book are in color, much to my surprise. They are so vivid it is like taking a trip to a kudzu field but lots less trouble. I did not know kudzu bloomed until I read this book.
I'm a storyteller and artist, and I give this book high marks in both categories.
