Nancy Gift is an assistant professor of environmental studies and acting director of The Rachel Carson Institute at Chatham University in Pittsburgh. Previously, she wrote a book of garden essays, A Weed by Any Other Name: The Virtues of a Messy Lawn, or Learning to Love the Plants We Don't Plant (Beacon Press, May 2009).

Praise for A Weed by Any Other Name:

NY Times Book Review, Dominique Browning: “I can thank Gift, a highly trained weed scientist, for the day I gave up on my lawn and planted clover."

The Ethicurean, Holly Hickman: "Gift knows her stuff.”

The Midwest Book Review: “...a read that anybody who wants a new philosophy of lawn care will love.”

Good Weed Bad Weed is a friendly, authoritative, easy-to-use guide to the uninvited plants in our yard: who they are, how to control them safely - and why it's a good idea to love some of them just the way they are (including a chart for how best to let our labor-intensive lawns “go native”). Weed expert Nancy Gift considers 50 of the most interesting and noteworthy weeds in our lives, with generous helpings of full-color photos, humor and some tasty weed recipes. Presented in the same format as our popular field guide to garden insects, Good Bug Bad Bug, with heavy matte-laminated pages and concealed-wire binding for handy use outside. An attractive gift book for adults and curious kids alike.
