During recent years there has been a great revival in the interest of herbs for both culinary purposes and healing and this has led to the production of numerous books on these subjects, but Wonders in Weeds will be welcomed by those seeking a reliable work by a practitioner who has studied and has had the opportunity of observing the results of botanic therapy over several decades. This book is the result of practical experience by a man who has devoted his whole life to healing, a man who is anxious to pass on his knowledge to those seeking a safe method of treatment which has no dangerous 'side' effects.
