Looking for the way back to Eden, and herbal books to educate yourself about healthier alternatives?
You can get this book and the Back to Eden Cookbook by Jethro Kloss through Amazon, which makes it possible to get second-hand copies when the books go out of print. What is more, you will find other herbal books available as well. Building your own reference library of herbal books is a great way to add to your knowledge of herbs, and it means the information is at your fingertips at home.
Of course, if you learn to do good in-depth searches on the internet you can find quite a bit of information too.
Not all herbal books are of equal value. You need to read with discernment and compare to what others say, or what you have discovered on your own. But if you are starting out in collecting your herbal books, you may want to watch for those that have been around a long time. Some herbal books become classics for a good reason. They have stood the test of time. Herbalists have found them reliable and useful.
Jethro Kloss was a man in the 1800s, who put a lot of his knowledge about plants and natural remedies into some herbal books. Several of them have Back to Eden in the title. The information in those books is still quite sound, and there is a movement to re-publish these fine reference books. An older woman showed me her copy and told me about Back to Eden and so I went to buy my own copy, and I have really used it a lot. The pages are falling apart! It truly has been the foundation of my basic education in all things herbal. I've bought a few other books since then, but I still prize my old battered copy of Back to Eden above all the other herbal books.
