About the Book

In this book Ann explored the questions that drew her to herbalism in the first place. If, as she believed, herbal medicine offers insights into how to live in right relationship with the earth, can those values stand up to capitalism? Can plants be both living entities with which humans can have a sacred relationship, and commodities governed by the laws of capital?”
