Wildcrafters and wild medicinal plant lovers need a handy reference guide to ensure correct plant identification of plants in the field. With years of experience writing and delivering wild medicine walks and lectures, Sulin has created a satchel sized book that covers all the botanical and medicinal aspects of a selection of wild medicinal healers. Recipes (both culinary and medicinal) provide inspiration and direction for how to best utilise each medicine after harvesting. The biggest challenge in wildcrafting however, is plant identification, and very few, if any, wildcrafting field guides can provide the detailed botanical descriptions of each plant that this book does. Perfect for wildcrafters, foragers, those who like to grow their own medicines and herbalists and naturopaths who like a sustainable approach to herbalism.
