Intriguing, on a number of levels. Russian, Indian, Pakistani, and Native American usages for many of the plants, with both folkloric data and scientific (when available.) Lots of interesting side information, and even agricultural cultivation data. (How much per acreage, etc...) Also had to keep looking up old names for illnesses, to find out what was being spoken of, which also amused me.
