    review Weeds by Evelyn I Funda ´ eBook ePUB or Kindle PDF Weeds by Evelyn I. FunI had to read this for one of my classes and went into it not intending to read the whole thing It's a pretty good memoir but nothing spectacular The weed theme was really intriguing but it didn't really hold my interest It was well written and I'm sure it would be great for someone who has similar experiences or who are interested in Idaho farming Just not my cup of tea
