Thanks very much, Beth - I bought it. I think I did anyway.  :)  

In case anyone else wants to buy it, the lowest price on Amazon.com is $35.
Yikes.  No way.

But I looked here:  http://www.addall.com/used/

I typed in the author's names and the title, and Addall.com came up with
several used copies, most of which were very expensive - even higher than
Amazon's price.

However, it also showed me several copies of "The Harrowsmith Country Life
Book of Garden Secrets: A Down-To-Earth Guide to the Art and Science of
Growing Better Vegetables" - same authors.  I think this is probably the
same book.  (Harrowsmith is a Canadian magazine about rural life.)

I ordered one from AbeBooks.com for $3.99.
