Michael Moore's celebrated companion guides comprehensively cover the entire range of medicinal herbs found in New Mexico, Arizona, West Texas, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and the California desert. Medicinal Plants of the Mountain West is the long-established classic work on medicinal herbs of the Western uplands. An authoritative presentation of more than 100 species, it is unsurpassed as a field guide and for its authoritative information on collection and medicinal preparation. Medicinal Plants of the Desert and Canyon West focuses on the plant life of rocky and arid lands of the West, and includes even more detailed information on the preparation and use of these vital herbs.

Hyperbole aside, the book is an invaluable reference. Not only does it describe the desert medicinal plants in excellent detail and provide information on preparation and usage, it also contains valuable insights into the preparation of medicinals in general and cleared up a few questions I didn't realize I had about the making of tinctures. My methods are better thanks to this book. That means my medicines will be more effective; no small thing.
A lot of my reading material these days is in electronic form. Generally, just the books I think of as "happy trash"; those novels and stories that amuse me but that could evaporate tomorrow and leave no one much the poorer for it. But, I am keenly aware of which books should never be kept only in electronic form. We need printed books very, very much because they contain the potential to outlast electricity. This isn't a small consideration anymore. This book of Mr. Moore's should definitely be in your analog collection. It needs to last. Buy two copies to be sure.
