I actually bought this book on pre-order months before it came out because I follow the author online and have used her methods and advice before. This book did not disappoint in my opinion. Its well researched, and as someone who's used herbal remedies for her livestock in the past, I really appreciate more information on that specific herbal topic. The books is also beautifully photographed and well organized. I highly recommend it if you love herbs and herbalism!
