The Poison Oak & Poison Ivy Survival Guide

As a poison ivy researcher for almost thirty years, I feel the author has done a great job researching the subject. Valuable information on the plants identification, control, treatment options, and a good lesson on the immune system.

The author has distilled every facet of knowledge concerning these ubiquitous plants and their kin into a marvelous volume of botanical lore, medical fact and practical advice. You will never look at these itch-inducing plants in quite the same way.
