Rodales 21st Century Herbal

 

Rodale’s 21st-Century Herbal: A Practical Guide for Healthy Living Using Nature’s Most Powerful Plants By Michael Balick  (Rodale Books, $40) This book holds fascination not only because of its history of plants from across the world, beauty recipes, culinary uses and plant profiles, but also for the stories interspersed throughout from Balick’s years as an ethnobotanist. As a reference book it is invaluable. As a distillation of the shared wisdom of healing herbs it is remarkable.
