    This is a great reference book to have. I love the paperback version and I like the recipies. However, I also bought Rosemary Gladstar’s Familiy Herbal, different title and different cover, thinking it was a different book. It is the EXACT same book page for page. So don’t buy both.

    I am new to the world of herbalism and have just begun exploring this ancient wisdom. This is the sixth book I have read on the topic. I am excited to try many of the recipes and have already ordered a few bulk herbs to make a few tinctures to treat the inevitable colds my household will suffer this winter. I am in awe and completely overwhelmed by the vast knowledge of Gladstar and authors like her. This was an enjoyable book to read.

    That being said, I do have one critique of the book (or maybe the lifestyle suggested by the book, not sure which). The author suggests that readers ingest so many tinctures, tonics, teas, foods, etc… each day that I wondered how anyone could live this “natural” lifestyle without getting sick to their stomachs or becoming bankrupt. If I followed the advice in the book, I’d have neither the time nor money to do much else. Who has the time to make and drink several cups of several kinds of tea each day?? This is not realistic for a working mother with 4 children like myself. I understand that perhaps this is not what the author intended, but she does not really give clear advice as to how someone like me (who cannot buy 100 herbs and eat/drink them all day) can put together a sensible and affordable regimen.

    All in all, great book. I will seek out others by this fascinating writer.

    Rosemary Gladstar is in my opinion one of the “true” people in healing. She offers information in the manner of one who wants to share rather than with hold or profit. I believe her work with Seed Savers supports my view. This paper back book which I bought for less than fifteen dollars is a treasure trove of information. She wants people to understand plants and use them for good . She also communicates the need for respecting the plant world which is after all part of our world. Her recipes are clear and easy to follow. Her books are always near at hand and I use them often. This is a true bargain and a good investment. Thank you Rosemary!!!!
