These aren’t free but well worth the money spent.    I have them listed in the order of how much I love them, but they certainly are all worth.    While not a beginners’ volume by any means,  I wish like mad that I’d read Matthew Wood’s Practice of Traditional Herbalism before I tried plowing through some of these older texts I have listed above.  I would definitely suggest ordering his books in the following order.
