Herbs are all around us, growing in the wild and in man-made spaces alike. In this pocket-sized guide, author Maggie Herskovits catalogs dozens of the herbs you can expect to find on walks around your neighborhood or in the woods, and explains where they came from, whether they are endemic to North America, brought here by settlers, or migrated here by other means. With illustrations of the herbs and descriptions of their properties and medicinal uses, this guide will help you identify these herbs and put them to use in your kitchen or your medicine cabinet. A great little volume to tuck in your pocket before you head out on a walk!
