well done book, I got some good ideas. I have a small city lot and also have some physical limitations, so some things in the book are not possible for me, but I am just going to use basic ideas and build miniature size medicine wheels that still provide me with the sacred space and sacred energy that meet my needs.
I bought this for my mom who made a 30 ft by 30ft Medicine wheel and she used this and one other book as a guide and inspiration. It is absolutley beautiful and has a beautiful energy in it thanks to the ideas in this book.
I'm taking my time reading this book so I don't really have anything detailed to say about it's content. I meant to read it as I do many of my books, but there are always those that make one stop and ponder and this is one of them.

I actually bought the book for the herbal information, with an eye to maybe creating a garden in our small patch of a yard and found that, as written, it is a meditation in itself. So I'm treating it as such because the information is provided in this quiet, serene approach that draws ones total attention and focus.

A lovely, well-written book; worth taking my time to read.
I built a Medicine Wheel in a garden area I wanted to re-do recently and then saw this book. I have experience in different herbs and plants and thought I could make a good one. In fact, I did. However, I bought this book thinking I could get more ideas. I was right. This is a book I refer to often. Daily, when I first received it. Very informative. I could not put it down and the book traveled with me everywhere for at the first 2 weeks. I remains a prominent part of my reference material.
This booked helped us to create a medicine wheel in Lebanon CT at our community garden in town. I liked how detailed plants are listed in book and all the ideas for ground covers author provides. We created a 30 foot diameter wheel with a fire pit in center made of pavers and stone dust. we are in process of raising funds to add medicinal plants arranged by color to the wheel.
This book is fantastic! It's full of information and you just can't put it down!
I bought this book for a friend and she is raving about it.
Even her boyfriend who thinks this is silly in now enjoying the process of creating the medicine wheel.
