    This book is SO full of information! It's a treasure trove of plants for medical uses. Granted, the author does not give specific amounts or formulas and if some are sacred to the tribe, he says so. That is all he will say about those and that is that. I love it! I'm sure this will be a constant reference book for me. Anyone interested in plant healing should pick this book up. This book is SO full of information!

    Plenty of herbs, many of them poorly covered elsewhere, but not much detail on each. Herbal information is poorly organized

    For anyone interested in herbal healing, growing herbs, and identifying plants with healing or herbal qualities, this is a wonderful book. Despite it's being set in the southern and southeastern United States, it either brought back memories, or confirmed stories I heard from my grandmother about Cherokee remedies. And many of these plants are indigenous to other areas, such as the northwest.

Glad I made this connection. Hope it's helpful to her.

    Excellent book for those who are interested in Cherokee culture in healing. Helps the layman have a working understanding how plants in their many forms are used to address the life values in each of the Four Directions. East Medicine values the importance of family life, the importance of women as Mother Earth and the importance of the heart in relationships and life. South Medicine addresses outdoor exposure of the exterior body and skin. West Medicine is about internal conditions and diseases th Excellent book for those who are interested in Cherokee culture in healing.

    A good overview reference to various plants that the Cherokee would use for healing purposes. I say overview, because it mostly touches on the individual plants in a paragraph or two. The books chapters are broken down by the directions, some general information and then plants related to those directions and that healing.

    More like 3.5 stars only because I wanted more and it met the needs of the average reader. That is not a criticism of the book at all; only my desire to continue to learn more about this subject because I really liked what I learned from this book.
