Summary, Etc. Protect yourself! A Guide to Deadly Herbs discusses, twenty-eight of the most beautiful, yet deadly, herbs found in the fields, meadow, forests, mountains, roadsides and backyards of North America. All the herbs discussed in this guide are extremely dangerous. Children, wild-food enthusiasts, pets and livestock are the most vulnerable, and deaths occur each year. As well as increasing your awareness of poisonous herbs, this book will provide you with an understanding of the dangers that grow both wild and cultivated. The guide provides details on peak seasons, were the herbs commonly grow, which parts of the herb are poisonous, and the manner of their toxicity. Information on the history and medicinal uses of these deadly plants is also included. Most importantly, the book teaches how to recognize these herbs, allowing you to avoid handling them or using them for food. This guide belongs in the pocket or backpack of every wild-foot collector and anyone with children or pets.
