Condition: Very Good in Very Good dust jacket

Cambridge: The Riverside Press. Very Good in Very Good dust jacket. 1964. Hardcover. Second printing. 314 pp. Illustrated by Bob Hines. Green cloth, lightly bumped tips; former owner's name on the ffep. Dust jacket lightly toned, small chips on head and tail. Now in protective clear cover. Kirkus review, 1964 "A forward looking approach to gardening that seems to be a direct response or compliment to Rachel Carson's thesis in Silent Spring, this exposits the present and explores the future possibilities in dealing with pests with only minimal resource to poisonous sprays. Mrs. Hunter seeks an integrated control of insects, birds and animals, and blights through biological means supported by prudent use of chemicals... The prospect of applying radiation, sound waves, control through atmosphere or disturbing the body chemistry are among those she posits for future development. For those shaken by the Carson book, here is a vanguard application." ; 8vo .
