ABOUT Doug Elliott

Doug Elliott
Doug Elliott is the author of Woodslore and Wildwoods Wisdom and lives in Union Mills, North Carolina.



For more than two decades Doug Elliot has wandered the fields, forests, and marshlands of North America gathering roots and herbs, and plant lore. A labor of love, Wild Roots is filled with practical information, extraordinary drawings and lively commentary, and offers a wealth of information about the roots, rhizomes, and tubers of North America.
"A wealth of information about almost sixty roots of North American plants. . . . It, altogether, is a thought-provoking little book, obviously a labor of love."
Natural Farmer, Winter 1998/99

"With its wealth of information and delightfully humorous flavor, Wild Roots refreshes the spirit like a hot cup of sassafras tea."
