Mat's Review: 

One of the better field guides for identifying over 500 medicinal plants. This updated version has been considerably improved, and is now filled with outstanding, clear, color photos to assist the reader in identifying the proper medicinal plants and herbs. Includes where the plants are found and detailed descriptions of their uses, both folk remedies and scientifically proven uses. James Duke, PhD, spent his life researching the medicinal properties of plants, and is one of the world’s foremost experts on this topic.
