Dara Saville, The Ecology of Herbal Medicine A Guide to Plants and Living Landscapes of the American Southwest


The Ecology of Herbal Medicine introduces botanical medicine through an in-depth explo- ration of the land, presenting a unique guide to plants found across the American South- west. An accomplished herbalist and geographer, Dara Saville offers readers an ecolog- ical manual for developing relationships with the land and plants in a new theoretical approach to using herbal medicines.

Designed to increase our understanding of plants’ rapport with their environment, this trailblazing herbal speaks to our innate connection to place and provides a pathway to understanding the medicinal properties of plants through their ecological relationships. With thirty-nine plant profiles and detailed color photographs, Saville provides an exten- sive materia medica in which she offers practical tools and information alongside inspi- ration for working with plants in a way that restores our connection to the natural world.
