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.
