4.0 out of 5 stars A weighty tome on the collection of medical herbs. April 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Considering the cost of the book version of this work, I specifically enjoyed the cost of this format. Also, it is very handy to be able to both search and highlight various passages.

I found that is perhaps has too much speculation on the value of herbs to cure too much - but this obviously has more to do with the 1908 print date than anything else. Curiously, many of the terms for various herbs has also changed.

So, this is a huge book on the period where herbs were the best (and often the only) curative. In modern practice one must take caution is just embracing all the recommendations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our herb garden references October 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As part of our on-going learning about how to grow and use herbs in cooking, canning, and teas, we bought this book. It is an excellent cross-reference manual, augmenting or contrasting nicely our other books.

This book gives practical, useable tips for identifying and growing American ginseng, and also gives an interesting wondow into the trade and horticulture practices of a bygone age.

It's cheap to take a look at it!

3.0 out of 5 stars An Older Book With Some Good Information July 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was written in 1908, so remember the time frame this book was from when reading. I was surprised by the information that I found, especially since the beginning was a little rambling. I also thought the bulk of the book would be about Ginseng (which it was), but there were many medicinal plants that were covered as well. My beef with many of these older books is a lack of pictures/drawings. When you are talking about plants, having good visual aids would be helpful distinquishing various plants. Another fault is talking about how much you can get for ginger on the market, and the amount of ginseng exported for various years. Since this book is over 100 years old, the information is irrelevant to today. Perhaps it could have been had the good information filtered from the unnecessary information...

3.0 out of 5 stars Ginseng and other medicinal plants April 8, 2013
By T. Duke
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is mostly written about American plants although quite a few can be found and grown in other countries. A large part of the book was taken up with information on Ginseng and how to grow it, etc. It wasn't what I was expecting, as I was looking for a more all round book about herbs and medicinal plants.
