Excellent Must Have Resource!  Apr 13, 2010
I love this book! I first went through my yard finding plants that could be edible, or just for identification. I like how the book often will tell you what state or region of the US the plants/herbs are mainly found in. I do wish there were more pictures of what these plants look like as younger seedlings, or in the germination stages since this is Spring! The pictures and descriptions are for fully mature plants.
Medicinal plants and herbs: Eastern/Central (2nd edition)  Sep 22, 2009
This book, one of the Peterson Field Guide series, should please naturalists, hikers through woods,meadows and thicket--and of course amateur and professional herbalists. The second edition fosters a new awareness of the need for ecological sensitivity and determination to preserve endangered species. Color photos are abundant. In addition to the indexes, there's a life list, similar to what you find in bird guides. I bought this as a companion to a herbal medicine handbook. It's a good companion for a walk, too, in woods or along roadsides.
Excellent  Aug 10, 2009
The book is an excellent reference for north eastern medicinal plants. Being a botanist, I was looking for something that clearly explains the medicinal purposes of plants. Useful in identifying specific plants, it gives detailed descriptions of almost all the parts of the plants so identification is made easier during each season. I highly recommend this book for both amateur and professional libraries alike.
Good quality research and scholarship  May 21, 2009
The contents are rich and the offerings (for the format and type of field handbook that it is) very complete. Really love this little gem. Love the way each plant has its common name and latin name, with the 'family' name, a brief description of the plant, appearance, general location found (i.e., pond edges), and warnings. There are also small icons/symbols next to the text to indicate those plants that might need caution in handling or be harmful in someway, (i.e., leaves may burn skin). Just wish the book also came in a larger format with larger print to leave on the coffee table or in one's library. I realize that the whole idea is to be able to carry it in a knapsack while one is on nature walks and identifying specimens. So it's perfect really. Some of the photos could be improved upon, maybe for the larger edition if it's ever published in the future. There are some plant specimens missing and medical vocab words listed in the glossary in the back are lacking a few here and there, but nothing that can't be looked up in a dictionary...Overall it's really a great reference book, one that you'll return to again and again.
Very informative!!!  May 15, 2009
My husband and I are making a conscious effort to live a more natural life, including natural remedies for illnesses. This book is wonderful. The illustrations are great, making it easy to identify the plants and the information provided is very thorough.
