I haven't finished reading it yet, but I'm engrossed. I've studied herbalism off and on for twenty years, both medicine and folklore, including reading books on herbal alchemy. This book though is the most fascinating one I've read in a long time. The way it ties various cultures together doesn't feel like a mishmash of insubstantial information the way some generalized subject books can, it feels more like an immersive story, inspiring and enjoyable. I cant put it down, and I'm a total ADHD type reader, usually reading a bit of one book and then a bit of another.

One of the best books I have read on the subject so far! This book contains a lot of history as well as a few "ancient" recipes. I would reccomend it to any one intrested in their herbal roots... lol!
