Duke, Ph.D., delivers the lowdown on virtually every healing herb available in today's marketplace: its description and history, therapeutic uses, medicinal properties, prescription counterparts, dosage options, safety and effectiveness rating, and precautions. Dr. Duke's inimitable folksy tone and friendly manner shine throughout "The Green Pharmacy Herbal Handbook," making it as entertaining to read as it is practical. The most thorough and comprehensive herb reference of its kind, the handbook was culled from the thousands of entries in Dr. Duke's database of the world's medicinal plants.

About James A. Duke

Dubbed "America's herbal laureate," James A. Duke received a Ph.D. in botany from the University of North Carolina and did postdoctoral work at Washington University and the Missouri Botanical Gardens, both in St. Louis. Following extensive fieldwork in the rainforests of Panama, Dr. Duke joined the USDA, where he played a leading role in the study of medicinal plants. Over the course of his 27-year tenure with the USDA, he interviewed thousands of traditional folk healers and scientists while compiling a comprehensive technical database of the medicinal compounds found in common and exotic plants. Now retired, Dr. Duke travels across the United States and around the world, spreading his message about the healing power of plants. He is an advisor to the American Botanical Council and several herb companies and author of "The Green Pharmacy" and "Dr. Duke's Essential Herbs." He and his wife, Peggy, live in Fulton, Maryland, where he cultivates his own 6-acre Herbal Vineyard, home to hundreds of species of healing plants.
