About this book

Language: French

Edelweiss carries a mythical Alpine identity because of its star-shaped symbols and preservative qualities. Of Eurasian origin, this perennial plant belongs to the family Asteraceae. Its medicinal properties were discovered early by mountain farmers . Widely used in herbal medicine and cosmetics, this iconic plant is rare in the Swiss mountains. It is protected throughout the Alps. Edelweiss: Reine des Fleurs is the first book devoted to Edelweiss written in French.

Summary in French:
Mention spéciale du Prix Mondial de l'Image de Montagne, décerné par le Salon International du Livre de Montagne, Passy, (Haute-Savoie), 2011

L'Edelweiss porte une identité alpine mythique chargée de symboles liés à sa forme étoilée et à sa faculté à tendre vers l'immortalité lorsqu'on la sèche. De tous temps, il s'est montré la fleur des montagnards par excellence, interprète souvent de l'amour. D'origine eurasiatique, cette plante vivace appartient à la famille des astéracées.

Ses vertus médicinales ont été découvertes très tôt par les paysans de montagne. Très utilisée en phytothérapie et en cosmétique, cette plante emblématique demeure rare dans nos montagnes. Elle est protégée dans tout l'Arc alpin. Cet ouvrage est le tout premier consacré à l'Edelweiss en langue française.
