Format: Paperback
I enjoyed reading about western medicinal plants as well as the author's wry humor (I found especially hilarious that comment about the temperature of sitz baths and not wanting to "poach your privates") and obvious expertise. The recipes and directions for making medications out of the plants are outstanding. However, the photography leaves much to be desired. A few of them are blurred and most do not show sufficient detail to enable unequivocal identification. Moreover,the pictures for Yerba Santa and Yerba del lobo are switched in the last page of the color plates. NOT GOOD, if you are using this as a field guide. This then raises the question of, are there other inaccuracies in the book? Definitely check the appearance of the herb you're looking for in another book if you plan to use it.

This book is an absolute gem. Michael's work is so throroughly researched (this fellow knows plants like no one else), and written with a lovely grace of love for the plants, for the land, all with Michael's totally unpretentious narrative & moments of humor. & Mimi's sketches are grand. I love it so much I bought 2 extra copies so there'd always be a copy in my office, at home and in my pack.
Use this book if you work with healing plants - or if you just want to feel a sense of place among the healing plants of the northwest.

After reading his stories of finding plants and prepration tribulations, I think Mr Moore is a big teddy-bear. He seems kind hearted and caring.
The book is an easy read with loads of information: location to find the plant , what it looks like (clear line drawings and description), what it does (also cross refrence tables) how to prepare plant (also a seprate section on prepration) and how to use (some recipes with multiple plants).
I even found a few plants nobody else was talking about!!yippe!

Format: Paperback
Moore tells what each plant is used for, but just as important, he details where and when to find the plant. He gives step by step recipes for each plant, telling if it should be rubbed on, eaten, soaked in, or steeped and drunk. He writes at least two pages on every plant, and some plants have seven pages because they are so useful. The only way to improve this book would be more photos. Every plant is illustrated, but less than half are shown in photos.

Michael Moore's two earlier books in the 'Medicinal Plants' -series were very good, but this one is outstanding. Michael Moore knows his plants, and he is very entertaining in his writings. To top it off, the plant drawings (by Mimi Kamp) are exquisite works of art. This is the best book on western herbs I've seen to date. Don't miss it!
