My childhood in the rocky Mountains, later in the Sierra,consisted of lots of time alone in the wilderness. My adolescent and young adulthood in Berkeley took me into the far reaches of intellect and public policy. Midlife and now growing into my sunset years I live in the Palouse where I write music, study herbs and garden.
Knowing what and how to collect requires knowledge, both intellectual and experiential. Darcy's book tells you what to do with the herbs; when, where, how, and for what purpose. She also includes interesting tidbits of history and Native use of the plants she describes. Quick and easy reference guide to medicinal use with recipes make this an excellent guide.
