Reissued as a companion edition to Trying to Give Ease: Tommie Bass and the Story of Herbal Medicine, this illustrated reference guide covers over 700 medicinal plants, of which more than 150 are readily obtainable in health food stores and other outlets. Based on the Appalachian herbal practice of the late A. L. "Tommie" Bass, each account of a plant includes the herbalist's comment, an assessment of the plant's efficacy, and current information on its chemical constituents and pharmacological effects. Unlike most herbal guides, this is a comprehensive, fully documented reference work that interweaves scientific evaluation with folkloric use.

Could not let the book down Sure not a literary master piece, but as one of the reviewers stated, it will keep you turning the pages.

John Tremblay

Exciting to read and hard to put down

Demotte Anderson

It was damn awesome, sweet, the way of describing the romance was just marvellous
