About the Author
Storey Books started out with a mission to serve our customers by publishing practical information that encourages personal independence in harmony with the environment. We started out in our rural Vermont office with a handful of gardening books and an even smaller handful of employees. But our collection soon grew to include books on herbs, cooking, crafts, natural health & beauty, and animals.
A lot has changed since then. We're now publishing practical, how-to information on subjects such as feng shui and aromatherapy -- unheard of in 1973! But no matter what the topic, our books are still designed to help you live a simpler, more satisfying life.
