I heard one of the co-authors talking about this book in a radio show. He is a pharmacologist or something along those lines. The other co-author has passed away, she was a Chumash healer. I really like this book because it outlines the plants in my part of the world and what they can be used for. It's written in a friendly, practical way and when a traditional use for a plant does not seem like a good idea the book says so. There are also several good recipes for healing potions included in some of the plant descriptions. This book seems like a valuable information resource to me; in some ways it's more accessible than the Peterson series' Western Medicinal Plants and Herbs.

I am personally acquainted with the author, Cecilia Garcia. She is a valued figure in the Chumash tribe. She is a true healer and is a great source of tribal history. She lives and breathes her culture and has helped so many. This publication says so much about the true resource that she is! Well done!

This book is truly interesting when one wonders how various plants were used by the native Americans. I enjoyed the insights of Garcia as she shared family stories and told of her experiences. She has passed away but her family history's written here.

This book is excellent information for a person looking for natural herb uses of plants that grow naturally in California. These remedies are full with historical uses and chemical composition of each plant that can be compared with modern prescription medicine types and possibly give even more insight into future cures of ailments using these natural plants.

I had no idea all the plants used for medicinal purposes. It was all very interesting and easy to understand.
