There are many many great books out there.... One of my favorites is called "the herbal drugstore.....

Here is a link.... I especially love it cuz there is an electronic version that I keep on my Ipad, so I always have a handy reference in the field....

Another one that I use is called Alaska Wilderness medicines, but most of the stuff in there is about the stuff that grows around here....

The Green Pharmacy by James Duke. Pharmacy may be spelled differently, I can't remember. Dr. Duke has several books that are good.
