Publisher Comments:

Healing Plants is a concise guide to traditional herbal medicine, written for both the beginner and the seasoned herbalist. Ana Nez Heatherley draws from her Native American and Celtic ancestry as she examines one hundred types of healing plants and herbs common to North America - from aloe and chickweed to periwinkle and yucca - citing the afflictions they remedy and offering understandable scientific explanations for each plant's effectiveness. Interweaving folklore throughout, Heatherley also gives growing tips, methods of preparing everything from a poultice to a tincture, herbal food ideas, and information on the latest research. With a color identification section, helpful cross-reference lists, location maps, and informative sidebars, Healing Plants is the most practical book for anyone looking for an alternative to modern medicine. (6 X 9, 288 pages, color photos, maps)
