I found "KUDZU in America" to be a delightful, fun and fast read. The challenge is that Kudzu is here, available, and above all is useful for making many products should not be ignored. That this plant can (and should) be viewed as an abundant potential *resource* -Not- simply as a pest, will be difficult for most to see. There is no 'silver bullet' quick fix, and it appears that utilizing Kudzu to it's fullest extent is fairly labor intensive. But I agree with the author that *harvesting* and using Kudzu (Many examples are listed) makes so much more sense, and since other countries do, Americans should be able to as well.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Written in an easy to follow and engaging style it gets the mind spinning like a sugar rush. One begins to think of ways to incorporate kudzu into life that might ameliorate the waste of such an abundant resource here in the South

All the pictures in this book are in color, much to my surprise. They are so vivid it is like taking a trip to a kudzu field but lots less trouble. I did not know kudzu bloomed until I read this book.I'm a storyteller and artist, and I give this book high marks in both categories.
