From Publishers Weekly:

Mitchell (The New American Vegetarian Menu Cookbook avoids the reliance on convenience foods that is a prominent feature of most books in the quick-and-easy cooking genre and offers here some 100 delicious, versatile, meatless dishes that are as healthful as they are fast. Stressing the importance of balance and moderation, advance planning and organization, presentation and quality equipment, she advocates the imaginative use of fresh ingredients rather than elaborate technique. To provide sources of complete protein, individual dishes combine grains and milk products (triple-cheese poppyseed noodles); grains and legumes (pasta and bean soup); and seeds and legumes (teriyaki salad). Mitchell draws from a variety of ethnic cuisinesFrench, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Indonesian, Moroccan, Mexican et al. The numerous culinary tips, multiple variations on a single recipe and mail-order sources are welcome extras in a valuable cookbook. Illustrations not seen by PW.

From Library Journal:

This book contains 98 of the finest tropical rainforest color photographs this reviewer has seen. Many full- and double-page, these photos are interwoven with a skillfully written text that leads the reader through the book with the quick pace of a film production. Ten chapters study tree-top ecosystems using arboreal platforms to reveal many secrets concerning the botany, predator-prey relationships, and insect life of this world rarely visible from the forest floor. Chapters on "tree people" and another on the future of rain forests tie in anthropology and bring us up to date. Highly recommended for general readers and informed laypersons.
