For untold thousands of years, human beings have thrived on the nutritional and medicinal wealth of the plant life in the natural world. In these fascinating, wide-ranging, wonderfully informative stories, tom Brown -- director of the world-famous Tracking, Nature and Wilderness Survival School -- tells all about the uncommon benefits of the common trees, shrubs, flowers, and other plants we find around us.

  • How to use every part of the plant -- leaves, flowers, bark, bulbs, and roots
  • Where to find useful plants, and the best times of year and stages of growth to harvest them
  • How to prepare delicious food dishes, soups, breads, and teas from riches of the great outdoors
  • An incredible range of experience-proven medicinal uses to treat headaches, burns, digestive disorders, skin problems, and a host of other maladies
At the age of eight, Tom Brown, Jr., began to learn tracking and hunting under the tutelage of the Apache elder, Stalking Wolf. Featured in PEOPLE magazine as the "Pine Barrens Tracker," Tom Brown disappeared at the height of his fame to spend a year in the wilderness with only a knife, honing the skills that he shares today at his famous survival school and in this unique series of books.
