About the Author

Stephen Harrod Buhner was the award-winning author of 25 books on plant medicines, Earth ecosystem dynamics, emerging diseases, and the states of mind and being necessary for successful habitation of Earth including numerous articles, memoirs, short stories, and poetry on nature, human-plant, and human-Earth relationships. He taught throughout the US, Canada, and the EU for over 35 years. Stephen was an interdisciplinary, independent scholar, polymath, autodidact, Fellow of Schumacher College UK, and had been head researcher for the Foundation for Gaian Studies for the past thirty years (gaianstudies.org). His book, The Lost Language of Plants, received a Nautilus and BBC Environmental Book of the Year Award. In 2022, he received the first annual McKenna Academy Distinguished Natural Philosopher Award in recognition of his work. His book, Earth Grief: The Journey Into and Through Ecological Loss, also won a Nautilus award.


"In this timely book, Buhner reveals that plants are the people's medicine, possessing attributes that pharmaceuticals never will."

"Humans have misused antibiotics to the point that these drugs are becoming worthless. In Herbal Antibiotics, Buhner argues that by turning to plants for healing, we would be working with nature--and improving our chances of surviving the superbugs."

"A comprehensive introduction worthy to be on the shelf of any holistic practitioner, herbalist, farmer or parent. The book ... shows an appreciation for the melding of traditional practices, tools, and wisdom with modern research and insight."
