by Matthew Wood
Organized as a materia medica, with alphabetical listings, this companion volume to The Earthwise Herbal: A Complete Guide to Old World Medicinal Plants provides detailed descriptions of North American herbs and their uses, plus remarkable case studies. In a thoughtful, engaging, nontechnical style, Wood explains the use of the whole plant – not just “active ingredients” – in the treatment of the whole person. Each listing includes current and past usage, pharmacological constituents, and symptoms and conditions that the plant has successfully treated. 500 pp.
