Best Audience for Slug Bread and Beheaded Thistles:
Homemakers, gardeners and homesteaders interested in creative, nontoxic options.
Sue said: This short paperback is full of easy techniques that are perfect for the practical person. The author has done her homework about the hazards of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and chemical cleansers. She knows what is at stake and this knowledge has clearly inspired her to get out the word about nontoxic options. Ellen Sandbeck has a wonderful sense of humor and a natural writing grace I found engaging enough to read through this book like a novel. I tried several of her suggestions and found they really did work. The illustration choices could double as pictures for a Trader Joe’s Flyer – very funny.
Candace said: As a general read, I enjoyed Slug Bread & Beheaded Thistles. Sandbeck’s style is delightful and I could easily imagine using many of her suggestions. A great choice for concerned parents. I recommend this book to my homesteading friends.
The bottom line: Sue and Candace give Slug Bread & Beheaded Thistles by Ellen Sandbeck two thumbs up.
