Overview
A Guide to Medicinal Plants of Appalachia, first published in 1969 by the USDA Forest Service, describes 126 trees, shrubs, herbs, and ferns that have traditionally been used for medicinal or therapeutic purposes by Native Americans and early settlers of the Appalachian region. Each plant is illustrated with a line drawing (or a b/w photograph), and a description including: scientific and common names, identifying features, flowering period, habitats where found, parts of the plant used, and traditional medicinal uses. Also included is a guide to collection and processing tools and methods for plants and pollen, optimal viewing times for each species, and a glossary of the terms used. The authors, all with advanced degrees and wide experience in forestry, botany, and medicinal plants, were researchers with a Forest Service Experiment Station. Note: this edition contains the complete text and illustrations of the original book (296 pages).
