Medicinal Plants of the Mountain West
Medicinal Plants of the Mountain West, by Michael Moore.
If you’ve studied herbs for more than fifteen seconds, you’ve stumbled across Michael Moore’s stuff. The legendary bear of the Southwest, Michael Moore is a national treasure. His books are absolutely chock-full of information on finding, harvesting, preserving, and using medicinal herbs. Even if you’re not going to get any closer to herbal medicine than the occasional cup of peppermint tea, Michael Moore’s books are worth a read for the stories inside, as well as his clever way of describing plants. If you’re going to be hiking around the mountains of the American West, this is a good book to have in your backpack!
