Format: Hardcover
THE DEVIL'S GARDEN by Edward R. Ricciuti was given to me when I was doing studies of herbs. For an author it is an excellent volume to have on the shelf for reference to ordinary plants and their properties of poison.
Mr. Ricciuti examines all the aspects of plants from their use in primitive fertility rites to the power of mass murder.
Hallucinogenic drugs are a new age thing, but the properties of plants have long been used by humans for the same purpose. The common jimson weed, which is in the same plant family as the tomato is a product of fields and road sides.
Botany is a fascinating subject and this title is an easy read, but the information and history behind uses for dangerous plants is illuminating.

Crazy Book! Real vintage stuff from the late 70's, brings me back to high school, where I first encountered this book in our library, which had a bumper crop of excellent animal books and adventure stuff, as well as others by Mr. Ricciuti. Cool name by the way, rhymes with "machete"...LOL! Overall, this book is a nifty little read, you can "slam" it in a single sitting, or on a rainy, gloomy afternoon. Did I like the book, you betcha, nice, crisp, anecdotal stories about toxicology and poisonous plants, including a chapter on grass baby! Buy the book, the cover is wacky!, love it. All Ricciuti's books are nifty little concise reads, he get's his jollies writing about "dangerous critters, creepy-crawlies, and toxic plants...crazy baby!
