Editorial Reviews

<p>"And then there are those—only a few, a rare book here and there—that are destined to become herbal classics, treasured like old friends, thumbed through again and again for their depth of herbal wisdom, for their teachings, and for their inner brilliance that illuminates this ancient field of plant study. Michael and Nancy Phillips have created such a special and inspirational work."--<strong>Rosemary Gladstar, From the Foreword</strong></p>
