"I have spent many warm, autumn afternoons, picking plump blackberries from field hedgerows. . . . Berries documents such traditions, along with intriguing botany, berry-lore, and the berry's place in international medicinal and culinary history. . . . Anderson covers the huge topic amazingly well, keeping the discussion engaging and entertaining throughout. . . . These stories, as well as the folk tales and mythology, make for a fascinating read. . . . I have a new appreciation for these jewel-like fruits."-- "Gardens Illustrated"
"There is much to learn about berries in this short book, with chapters covering their cultivation, culinary uses (from pies, preserves, cakes, and desserts to juices and alcoholic drinks), and their historical role as both poison and panacea. . . . Concise and attractively illustrated, Berries makes a tasty snack."-- "OxVeg News"
