“Buhner articulates the sacred underpinnings of the herbal world and deep ecology as only a real ‘green man’ can.”
“The first in-depth analysis of the processes used by Native Americans to communicate with the plant world for the purposes of healing human illness. It is a work long overdue by an author who himself ‘talks’ with plants as Native Americans have always done.”
". . . guides the reader through the practical technology of herbalism—which parts of the plant to use, and how to prepare tinctures, salves, and infusions, never letting us forget the underlying precious and holy exchange that is happening."
". . . offers not just another herbal, but the first in-depth analysis of how the Native Americans communicated with the plant world to heal human ailments."
". . . the first in-depth study that examines the world of Native American medicinal herbalism."
"Sacred Plant Medicine will guide you into the territory where plants are an expression of the spirit. Through prayer and sacred medicinal songs, Buhner shows how plants reveal their medicinal properties."
"A delightful read in all ways and highly recommended."
"This is an excellent reference book, as well as a wonderful book for beginners who want a true understanding of how to begin working with plants."
