This book is the first-ever revision of a classic guidebook. It provides information on each plant's characteristics, distribution, and medicinal qualities, as well as updated taxonomy and 15 new species. It shows how to identify and use wild plants for medicinal purposes. 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.
