I read this book as part of my Herbal Studies course through Penn Foster. It was fantastic! The author lays everything out in very simple, easy to read steps. She does not expect you to be nor become an "herbal expert" at the end of the book. She does want you to feel comfortable working with some simple herbs and simple recipes by the end of the book.

Very informative without being overwhelming.

Eh. Best part of this book was the folklore she told. The author expected the reader to have a mountain of fresh herbs in their back yard. Not to mention being ankle to readily identify them. I felt get recipes did not have enough info to convert to died herbs.

A bit more intense on the background of herbalism and less intense on the recipes side. Less than half of the book is actual recipes.

It sounds goofy to say this about an herbal medicine book, but I absolutely could not put this one down! I started it at the gym, and I actually EXTENDED my workout to keep reading! How shocking!

Seriously, though, it blends good, practical tips about what herbs to use and how to use them with lifestyle guidance for when to use herbal medicines and how to incorporate them into a healthy diet. Plus, the whole thing is peppered with Native American and folkloric tales about plants, like, "How the R
