If I had to choose only one book on medicinal plants, this would be the one. I say this, because the book provides comprehensive information. It helps with identification, when and how to harvest, how to make preparations and what doses to use for various ailments and illnesses.  Moore has extensive experience using these plants so this is one book you can feel safe to use when just learning medicinal plants.

This is an outstanding book with detailed information on identification, harvesting and use of medicinal plants from this region. One of the unique things about this book is the tremendous respect the author has for the plants and the information he provides about respect, sustainable harvest and protecting the species.

This is a must have book for those in the Pacific NW. It doesn’t focus specifically on edible and medicinal properties, but most listings include traditional uses, so with other books, it is very helpful to identify those that are edible and medicinal. It also has a large number of plants that I have not found in other books so can really help with the plant identification frustration.
