A book that will guide you through nature to identify, harvest and preserve edible plants needed to be written and here it is. It’s written for those looking to go a little further than simply looking at their surroundings, it’s meant for those wanting to live off the land in some way even if it’s just a little, to gain health and get back to the earth like we were meant to be.
Is a priceless reference tool for any herbalist!
Thank you to Netgalley, Leda Meredith, and Roost Books for the ARC! I truly enjoyed it and will be going back to it time and time again!
