Foxfire One

The contents of this book need little introduction; they stand on their own as helpful instructions and enjoyable reading. But what is not immediately apparent is that the material here was collected and put together almost entirely by high school students. And that makes the book a little special—for me at least, since they were kids I was supposed to be teaching. DOWNLOAD .PDF

WHO-Monographs-on-Selected-Medicinal-Plants-Vol-3
