Healing Wise (Susun Weed) was a beautiful read. It looks at three different perspectives or systems of healing (Wise Woman, Heroic and Scientific) and really goes in depth about not just facts but the feel of each. The majority of pages, however, are herbal allies.
You might expect to have a bit of an encyclopedia, but it's a totally different way of looking at them. It's just a few with every angle explored. They are herbs that grow fairy plentifully and are often considered weeds (chickweed, violet, stinging nettle, burdock, oatstraw, three seaweeds). There are many food-type recipes included as well. At the end of the book, there is a small guide for different herbal preparations. This book is a keeper!
