Editorial Reviews

"If your bookshelves are like mine - overcrowded - then you are probably careful about which books you allow to stake claim. Healthy Herbs: Your Everyday Guide to Medicinal Herbs and Their Use may seem to lack the necessary prestige with its unpretentious title and presentation, but it's actually worth the small space it will take up. . . The book is readable and accessible in its language, size, and price."
-- HerbalGram, The Journal of the American Botanical Council
