Product Description

Review

"There are many fine herb books written by our country's great herbalists gracing the shelves these days. But only once in a while does a classic arise. The Book of Herbal Wisdom is surely that. Written with grace, intelligence, and warmth, this book is richly infused with the gift of wisdom and earns its title at every turn."
- Rosemary Gladstar

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Orchids like bay windows. on July 25 2000
Format: Paperback
This herb book is one of the best I've read because of the vivid descriptions. I've been able to help myself much more effectively with herbs now than in the past due to the detailed descriptions. The author explains traditional systems of classifications and includes examples that really stick in the mind. It's obvious the author has a deep understanding and love of each plant.

Best reference for integrating herbal, homeopathic, Native American, and flower essence uses of a plant. Engaging style. Great examples that stick in my mind. History of plant use integrated well with modern usage.
