The War On Weeds In The Prairie West: An Environmental History by history buff and weed control expert Clinton L. Evans covers four centuries of the history of pervasive and tenacious Canadian weeds, since their arrival as seeds from England in the sixteenth century. Agricultural battles against these weeds through the centuries are traced in this aptly researched, informative compendium filled with amazing cross-connections in the natural world and human cultivation. The War On Weeds In The Prairie West is a very strongly recommended addition to gadening and agricultural studies supplemental reading lists as well as academic horticultural and ecological history reference collections.
