Medicinal Plants, Trees, & Shrubs of Appalachia - A Field Guide
8 1/2 x 11 format - Sprial Bound to lay flat. Originally call West Virginia Medicinal Plants, Trees, & shrubs, but since these plants are found throughout Appalachia I changed the name to Medicinal Plants, Trees, & Shrubs of Appalachia. This book has 107 plants with descriptions, color photos of each plant, and a space on the back to record your own notes. It tells when the plant flowers, what part is medicinal, when to gather it and how to use it. It describes each plants medicinal properties and what that property means, as well as a section on weights and measures, and dosages, plant parts, different types of preparations, a flowering calendar and a gathering calendar.
