This is my go to book currently. So much cool information. We have been collecting some cool plants and using their roots, leaves, and flowers to make some teas, infused oils, and medicines. I have been using the information to educate my daughter and her friends as well as the people I hike with.
The book even provides a section that warns of dangerous plants.
