Featuring full-color photographs, botanical drawings, and maps, this fact-filled book is based on the work of renowned botanical experts and presents beautifully illustrated entries for hundreds of plants.

Each plant is clearly described, with full details of its physical appearance and medicinal uses, its origins and geographic distribution, how it's harvested and used in conventional and alternative medicine, a range map; and more.

Fascinating cultural and scientific histories trace their origins in ancient folklore and follow them through the ages to their surprising role today as possible cures for colds and other illnesses.
