Review quote

Even as a homesteader myself, herbalism has always been a bit of a mystery. Until now. In The Homesteader's Herbal Companion, Amy makes herbalism not only easy to understand, but also inspiringly charming. Easy methods, dosages, and instructions make herbalism do-able, even for the average person. Looks like we'll all be planting a much larger herbal garden this spring. -- Shaye Elliott, author of Welcome to the Farm and Family Table . . . a valuable resource for the beginner and the novice who wish to seek natural remedies. -- Doug and Stacy Colbert, Off Grid with Doug and Stacy
