I love this book, from its use of plant scetches to its easy to understand format, to the fact it is actually in alphabetical order. I have been studying the usage of herbs since I was 13, and of all my books on herbs this one by far is my best and most used.

I would recomend it as very practical for modern usage as it tells the Name, Offical name, features, medical parts, uses, doseage, etc. It is a must for an herbalists bookshelf or for those into native american plants and culture.

First of all, if you thought this book was referring to herbs used by Native Americans, you were right only to a very minor degree. The book is actually referring to herbs found and used in America. This includes all herbs, native or introduced. It reviews each herb, it's scientific name, and common names, a description of each, and their uses. Most uses are for "folk medicine", although clinical uses and their effects are also given. Doses are given in most instances.

I liked this book, educating and very factual. I reference this book almost daily. Pictures of the plant it self are in drawing form making it easy to identify the plant in the field. Narrow and saddle-bag size. Wonderful!

This is NOT a NATIVE book!

I bought mine from Amazon Italy, thinking it was about Native Herbalism.

Instead, it should have been called "Russian Experiences with North-American Herbs".

I am really offended by the misleading choice of the title and the poor "Native" content. It has information mainly about European traditional herbalism.

If you want a real Native Herbal book, I would suggest: TIS MAL CROW: NATIVE PLANTS, NATIVE HEALING: TRADITIONAL MUSKOGEE WAY. A real treasure to keep in your bookshelf.

This is a very interesting book to use and to study. You'll find all sorts of things you never knew before. Things that you'll be thankful you knew in the future. It's also a great reference book for natural cures and treatments to various minor (or major) medical situations.

It's easy to navigate, easy to read, and easy to get what you need or want to know from it quickly :) Fantastic book to read, especially if you live in the country, or the woods.

Not for amateurs. In depth botanical definitions, could have better drawings on some of the herbs, or at least color for better quality.

Format: Paperback
The American Indians had no SuperWalmart to run an buy some ibuprofan or aspirin at 10 o'clock at night. Oh, the pain, what would the do??? Why not chew on the bark of a white willow tree! This is a good book detailing over one hundred herbs commonly used by the American Indians for a variety of treatments. The book details the treatment, gives methods of application and a drawing. Would be better (but more expensive) with color pictures. Helpful to a degree, limited without enough scientific information for my own needs.
