For centuries, poison ivy has bedeviled, inconvenienced, and downright tortured the human race. In Praise of Poison Ivy explores the question of why this plant is apparently on a mission to give us humans grief, from itchy ankles to life-threatening medical emergencies. In Praise of Poison Ivy also examines why poison ivy targets humans, but no other species, and explains the mystery of why a privileged few are immune to its itchy consequences.
