The Wild West has a whole new brand of outlaw―noxious weeds. They steal space from native plants, poison livestock, and blatantly trespass where they’re not wanted. Author Karen Sackett informs readers of all ages of the wily ways of weeds, including the creepy trickster Dalmatian toadflax, which looks like a garden snapdragon but spreads long distances underground, and the hitchhiking outlaw houndstongue, whose Velcro-like burrs cling to fur and clothes. You’ll learn how “special agents” in weed control―insects and goats―are reining in these outlaws, and you’ll find out what you can do to help. Aliases, mug shots, and hangouts of the West’s ten worst outlaw weeds are described in the Most Not Wanted section of the book. Hilarious cartoons, detailed botanical drawings, and colorful photographs will help budding weed vigilantes track down their quarry.

About the Author:

Karen Sackett has an elementary education degree, with a minor in speech pathology. She has a passion for writing, working with kids, and playing bluegrass music. Originally from Idaho, Karen and her husband have lived for over twenty-five years in a forest near Bozeman, Montana. She learned to maintain a healthy forest on her land through work with the Montana Master Forest Stewardship Program. When she’s not patrolling for outlaw weeds with her grandchildren, she’s learning to play the Paraguayan harp.

Review:

The cartoon-like cover illustration might make you thing this is a silly book for little kids, but it is actually a well-researched, well-written book about noxious invasive weeds and the threat they post to natural, native vegetation. --Ann Dickinson--Southwest Books of the Year 2015
