With over eighty line drawings, forty-four color photographs, maps, and a glossary, this book contains clear and reliable information on:

  • identification and safe uses of the plant
  • appearance, habitats, collecting methods, and storage
  • therapeutic uses, constituents, and preparations
  • potential toxicities and medical contraindications
  • tea making, tincturing, and salve making

"If you like your herbal medicine with a proper amount of scientific terminology, a dollop of dry humor, a salting of opinionated pronouncements, and a dash of high junks, Michael Moore's latest book Medicinal Plants of the Pacific West, is just your cup of brew. West Coast herbalists, naturalists, and wildflower enthusiasts will find renewed appreciation for the plants of their bioregion from even a cursory reading of this deeply detailed work. Makes me want to move West."
-- Susan Weed, Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Years
