""Trying to Give Ease" and "A Reference Guide to Medicinal Plants" are two of the best resources I've come across. The second volume of the set, "Reference Guide to Medicinal Plants," is a veritable feast of herbal knowledge. This is the first book I reach for when I'm researching the uses of a plant."
"When noted Purdue pharmacognosist Varro Tyler reviewed the "Reference Guide to Medicinal Plants" upon its original publication, he called it one of 'the best available' historical commentaries on herbs in the English language. This assessment still stands. . . . [T]he usefulness of this book for the historian and even the clinician interested in the background and context of these medicinal plants is undeniable. It should occupy an important place in the library of everyone interested in the historical development of the American materia medica and its role in providing an important component in the spectrum of therapeutic choices available at the grassroots level."
