About this book

This illustrated guide to North American wild medicinals has been a nature classic for over thirty years. In this new edition, David K Foster revises Bradford Angier's invaluable handbook, updating the taxonomy and adding more than a dozen species, including the purple coneflower, popularly known as echinacea, as well as ephedra, jewelweed, goldenseal, and more.
Scientific information for a general audience and full-colour illustrations combine with intriguing accounts of the plants' uses, making this a practical guide for anyone interested in the medicinal uses of wild plants.
