This book is a must for anyone wanting to look deeper into the true nature of how herbalism can support healing, and are ready for their own self enquiry into these meeting with plants I will read this again and again, both cover to cover, and dipping in and out of it for certain fragments and little gems of information.
Reading this last summer, it inspired me to want to visit all the plants and meet them, spend time with them and really get to know them as Nathan outlines ways to do at the end of each chapter Now as the air grows warmer again, and spring is approaching I can t wait to do just that.
This is a great book, has the information I was looking for accompanied by the most beautiful artwork I ve seen in a book like this.
This is a work of utter beauty and a heartfelt expression of love for our ever diminishing landscapes Fiona s illustration is breathtaking Nathaniel s words echo through the natural world This book will enthrall and enlighten stunning.
It s absolutely wonderful, so beautifully illustrated it s easy to overlook the usefulness and practicality of the contents If you re interested in herbs, complementary medicine or just love gorgeous books, this is it It speaks from the heart with a depth that transcends the knowledge being passed on and is a Gift.
Thank you to the authors.
