Amy Stewart discusses and signs Wicked Plants

Amy StewartA tree that sheds poison daggers; a glistening red seed that stops the heart; a shrub that causes paralysis; a vine that strangles; and a leaf that triggered a war. Stewart takes on over two hundred of Mother Nature's most appalling creations in an A to Z of plants that kill, maim, intoxicate, and otherwise offend.

Drawing on history, medicine, science, and legend, bestselling author Stewart provides an account of bloodcurdling botany that will entertain, alarm, and enlighten even the most intrepid gardeners and nature lovers.
