View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This book has been described as the herbalist's bible. For the beginner, it's an outstanding introduction to the subject. For those who are already knowledgeable, it is a ready reference and thorough review. To challenge the serious student, it lists questions at the end of each chapter: "What family of herbs, useful at other times, should not be used by pregnant women?"Mary Carse wrote the book for use in her own classes, over more than 25 years of teaching students. She constantly revised and honed the book, leading up to its publication for the general reader.There are a great many herbals. This one deserves to be on the bookshelf of everybody who has a serious interest in the subject.

About the Author:

Mary Carse, a registered member of the National Institute of Medicinal Herbs (Great Britain), has spent many years helping others to help themselves. She combines a cautious, traditional approach to herbalism with the best of modern research. Her Vermont garden and the surrounding countryside are the source of many useful herbs.

From Library Journal:

Another in the field of complementary health care devoted to herbal remedies, this book provides the general reader with an overview of botanical families, directions for herbal preparations, and descriptions of herbs and ailments. Designed as a self-teaching text and handbook, the guide, at times confusing to use, combines formats, with a dictionary arrangement and chapter lessons followed by review questions. Most of the information on herbs may be found elsewhere. Similar in scope to the first part of Neville and Susan Drury's The Illustrated Dictionary of Natural Therapy ( LJ 5/1/89), the guide's best feature is that it allows the reader to approach the study of herbalism from a botanical or medical viewpoint.
