These books are all those that I have read or use regularly in my study of plants and herbal medicine, and most of them I would not want to leave my book shelf. They cover a range of topics from the how’s and what’s of herbal medicine for children, adults and animals, to Taoism, and plant consciousness. I hope that you will find some titles to interest you as well. They are listed with author’s name in alphabetical order.
