In this little book of 64 pages, descriptions are given of twenty-seven commonly found wild plants that either are or have been used for medicinal purposes. An illustration is given of each plant described, and the descriptive matter includes a description of the plant in popular language, particulars as to where the plant is to be found, and an account of its medicinal properties and uses. The author does not claim that his work is exhaustive in any direction, his object in writing the book being to provide a pocket guide which would enable people on country rambles to learn something about some of the plants they pass.
