Synopsis: Blackberry Cove is an Appalachian mountain farm, a few nearly-level clearings tucked up between the rocky ridges, where herbalist Linda Rago gathers herbs for "meate or medicine" and watches life unfold around her in each of nature's seasons.

Now join Linda through the seasons in Blackberry Cove and discover the healing wisdom of bygone days. Here are the herbs, wild and free to spring up wherever the wind carries their seed. Walk gently on their intricate green carpet, as Linda shows you which herbs flourish there every month. Help her cut the sprigs of the plentiful herbs, leaving enough to thrive and propagate. Discover those rare or scarce herbs and let them be about their own task of living, after savoring their beauty and form.

Out of the mountain stilness, hear the Appalachian grandmothers' words of wisdom and advice, their recipes, remedies, and legends of long ago when herbs were the only medicine and storytelling was an art. Discover the healing properties of each common herb and the bounty each month ahs to offer--from the mullein of March to the wintergreen of February.

Blackberry Cove is a celebration of the spiraling seasons and the common herbs, plants, traditional wisdom, and legends found in one small Appalachian mountain cove. Inside you'll find:

From the mullein of March to the wintergreen of February--a month-by-month guide to common herbs found in a field and forest and their healing powers.

Botanical descriptions, medicinal and culinary recipes, and myths and stories passed from one generation to the next

Full color pastels and watercolors to illustrate the herbs and the Appalachian landscape they inhabit.

Now walk with herbalist Linda Rago through the seasons of Blackberry Cove and discover the healing wisdom of bygone days.

Product Description: In Blackberry Cove the herbs are wild and free to spring up wherever the wind carries their seed. This herbal guide to Blackberry Cove has organised herbal lore and wisdom on the area into months and seasons with brief essays on the wild and common herbs a wanderer might discover on a walk during that time of year. Each month is introduced by an essay evoking the weather and nature with a legend or two woven into the reality of life in the Eastern mountains of America. The description of the herbs also includes their natural habits and healing qualities, sometimes a recipe for a traditional remedy, lotion or ointment and often a sauce, jelly, vinegar or tea.
