An encyclopedia of North American medicinal plants, this classic herbalist’s guide goes inside Native American herbalism and other natural healing traditions around the world
For more than twenty years, this pioneering work had served as a bible for herbalists throughout the world. It is an illustrated encyclopedic guide to more than two hundred medicinal plants found in North America, with descriptions of each plant’s appearance and uses, and directions for methods of use and dosage.
