Few great, beginner-oriented gardening books tackle the unique problems of getting your hands dirty in the Intermountain West.
"And the prose in Idahoan Mary Ann Newcomer's "Guide to Vegetable Gardening in the Mountain States" has just the right touch. You can tell she's been there and planted that and knows our region's eccentricities like the back of her trowel. An A-Z encyclopedia of edibles and month-by-month to-do lists form the book's backbone." - The Denver Post
" worth a long look."
"Concentrating on eight states & the lower part of two Canadian provinces, "Vegetable Gardening in the Mountain States" is full of useful information, like the number of frost-free growing days for 20 locations in the mountain West; how to test for soil composition and how to amend your soil if needed; organic versus inorganic; planning a first-time garden -- choosing size, designing the beds, choosing what to grow. The large middle section of the book is a month-by-month guide of what to do in the garden... is packed with good information." The Pueblo Chieftain
From the Author
Growing your own food is truly a labor of love. It's a deeply satisfying feeling to be able to stand in the garden eating your fill of golden raspberries or yellow pear tomatoes, both warm from the morning sun. My grandparents started me on this gardening path, and I will always be glad they did. I am lucky most of my family and friends, by nature or design, happen to be fond of gardening and even fonder of a great meal produced from the garden.
Being able to share my love of gardening, via this book, with new and seasoned gardeners is a gift. I hope it brings you a delicious experience and bounty to share.

i would further classify this as more of a basic beginner's guide to gardening. the information contained is pretty basic and is covered by the many other (and better) gardening books available, and would save your money for one of these.
