Praise

“Anna Rósa has not only written one of Iceland’s most comprehensive herb books, but has also added to our American herbal resources with this beautifully designed and well laid out book. I was delighted to find that though this book was written with Icelandic plants in mind, every one of the 85 plants mentioned is found growing in abundance in North America.”
—Rosemary Gladstar, herbalist and author of Rosemary Gladstar’s Medicine Herbs
 
“Most of us do not live in Iceland. Many of us will never visit there. Why would we want a book on the medicinal plants of this northern island? There are several very good answers to this question.… This book is a superb example of making the most of a limited variety of plants that can survive colder climates. Anna Rósa Róbertsdóttir is a skilled herbalist who makes plants come alive with vivid color photographs and well-researched monographs for more than 80 common and less well-known herbs. Any book where I can read about an herb I know well and come away learning something new deserves a place on my book shelf and I would suggest yours as well.”
—David Winston, RH (AHG), author of Adaptogens: Herbs for Strength, Stamina, and Stress Relief
 
“This is one of the most all-around useful herb books I have seen in a long time. Aside from the gorgeous full-page photos that truly capture the beauty of each plant, Anna Rósa has given a wealth of practical information and tried and tested recipes presented in a user-friendly format for the herbal beginner but with enough references to satisfy health care professionals as well. Some species are unusual to readers from warmer climates but the author gives alternative herbs and discusses substitutions so the book can be helpful to anyone in the northern zones. Written in plain English but not dumbed down at all, and filled with useful information, this is a book to treasure and to reference again and again.”
—Chanchal Cabrera, MSc, FNIMH, RH (AHG), medical herbalist
