Comments: This is an excellent book! Great basic information for tinctures, salves, understanding plants and herbs.The folk stories add a wonderful touch and bring home the history of herbal healing. The facts are laid out simple and straight without talking down to the reader. Bound to become a well worn reference book in the library of any one with an interest in herbalism.
