All About Weeds
Edwin Rollin Spencer
Who would expect that a book about "weeds" could be such a delightful read?
The author was both a farmer and a professor of biology, and he speaks as one intimately acquainted with each plant that he describes. Originally published in 1940.
This book is out of print, but still useful! Check out your local used bookstores or an online source like AbeBooks.

If "briar" doesn't deliver the results you want, try an alternate spelling such as "brier", etc.
