Editorial Reviews

Review

"Touching on a range of issues in American history, Carriker's book deserves attention from a range of quarters, including historians of nutrition, the city, and the New Deal."—H-Urban, H-Net Reviews

“Carriker provides a valuable account of the inner workings of the Urban Homesteads project and treats an interesting variety of personalities involved in the story.” —Richard W. Etulain, author of Does the Frontier Experience Make America Exceptional?

From the Inside Flap

This encyclopedic work describes the flora of a unique area in the "Sky Islands" region where Arizona, New Mexico and Mexico meet. It is home to more than 3,000 species and a wide range of habitats. The book includes descriptions, identifications, ecology, ethnobotany, and extensive etymologies of plant names.
