Those who live with nature, will have an incomparable wealth of knowledge in their hands with this book – a body of knowledge that otherwise is threatened being lost. The book describes 600 plants in their characteristics and effects, and additionally shows 117 of them in wonderful artistic detail drawings. The author is a scientist and artist at the same time. 25 years of research – including the knowledge of a number of traditional healers – are documented here.
Extensive lists of plant families, local names, medical effects, write-ups about the habitats and traditional uses etc. round off this timeless work and make it incomparably valuable.
