If I could give this book 6 stars, I would. It has full-color photos of each plant in the blossom and the seed/fruit stages, Native American uses, Greek or ancient/middle ages discoveries about the plant, what it has been used for historically,when to pick it, how to prepare the item, and how to administer the tincture, etc. Makes a weedy garden a prize of untold wealth.
