July/Aug. 2007 California Country magazine
By Kate Campbell
Pulling weeds by hand or rooting them out by shovel is hard work. The job of figuring out which plants to pull and which to leave alone, however, just got a lot easier. The two-volume Weeds of California and Other Western States is an encyclopedic, yet easy-to-use guide to weeds in the Western United States. From the University of California, it includes color photos of more than 700 weeds in every life stage from seeds and seedlings to flowers and mature plants. $100.
