Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-- A comprehensive guide to understanding the medicinal value of plants, trees, and shrubs. The book includes a well-planned index, attractive plates and illustrations, cross-references, and interpretative symbols regarding the plants' uses. The text is well researched. Each entry gives the common and scientific name, a short description of the plant, its general location, and its utility in the field of medicine. A book for anyone interested in the outdoors and/or who has an affinity with nature, and for students who are doing research on plant life. --Jeanette M. Lippencott, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA
