by Patricia Kyritsi Howell
The book covers forty-five native plants and their historical and current uses. It also includes detailed instructions for making a variety of herbal medicines such as tinctures, teas, liniments, salves, and syrups. Patricia shares many of her recipes for herb preparations such as Lobelia Liniment, Gentian Digestive Bitters, Sweet Gum Salve, and more.
Designed to be a hands-on reference for the home herbalist, the book includes Bloom and Harvest Charts for all 45 plants and is packed with practical advice about harvesting and preserving wild herbs.
The book does not include photos or pictures of the plants and readers are encouraged to use one of the many excellent field guides available for the region, such as Peterson's Field Guide to Medicinal Medicinal Plants and Herbs by James A. Duke and Stephen Foster or Newcomb's Wildflower Guide by Lawrence Newcomb.
