KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the form of propaganda which though worthy is apt to bore some clients. Too much emphasis on ""carrots for better blackout sight"", and ""pull up the vines and cucumbara"". Therefore save this one for the nutrition and canteen classes, for the food and housing in civilian defense, for the health food groups. You'll be safe and your clients better satisfied. There is so much packed into the book, and wordily so that it is not easy to use. Herbs are listed with 50 references, has 1 beans and swiss chard each. The result is a feeling of repetition and much time is spent in tracking down the proper reference. The book requires time to study, assimilates and rearrange in proper categories. Various of the subjects covered are vitamins, beauty, space savers, planning and planting, glass and soilless culture, herb and salad gardens, junior gardens, diseases and pests, etc. All this and yet on specific directions for harvesting crops, cutting asparagus, descriptions or definitions of onion sets, of seed potatos etc. A book which is too explicit for the , insufficient for the expert.
