Overview

Here is everything that a field guide should be and contain--small enough to stick into a pocket but comprehensive, definitive and dependable.

Descriptions, locations, uses, warnings. The Author is not only an herbalist of the first rank but one of the finest plant photographers out there clicking.

Herbal preparations as alternatives to synthetic drugs are increasingly chosen. St. Johns Wort for depression, Saw Palmetto for prostate treatment, Goldenseal for a multitude of symptoms. Not typically thought of as herbs, trees are also a part of our living pharmacy and many are included here. Ginkgolides extracted from leaves of the Ginkgo tree (ginkgo biloba) are the best-selling herbal preparation in Europe. Aspirin derives from the willow.

With increasing usage, many plants are in danger of being overharvested. Conservation is necessary to preserve a viable natural community of plants that can and may help alleviate human suffering. Stopping plant thieves is a law enforcement challenge but easy identification of plants may save others of us from bulldozing a patch of ginseng for a house site.

More than just a field guide, this book is an essential reference book for our personal library. The value of this big little book can hardly be overestimated.
