Oh my, yes, I love the book.  I've been reading  with maps in hand.  What a geographical education, on top of the wonderful information about plants I know virtually nothing about.  I kicked myself for not reading with notepad in hand (to make a seedlist of must-haves), but the book demands rereading in any case.

As for the editing, sure it's a little rough and Jane McGary has mentioned words used that are not in our vernacular.  I guess my comment would be "So what!"  The mere fact that we have this book in hand for future reference is all I care about.  That the book demands some serious attention to the business of reading is no bad thing, given the eye candy with which we are so continually assaulted these days.

Ok, so I'm in love with words for their own sake - one man's awkward phrase is another's different approach.  There's something to be said for a fresh description.
