A FIELD GUIDE TO POISON IVY, POISON-OAK, AND POISON SUMAC: Prevention and Remedies (Falcon)Susan Carol Hauser The most up-to-date and comprehensive guide on the market This handbook takes the mystery out of identifying these common weeds and provides useful antidotes for treating their irritating, itching rashes. Color photos show the plants in every season, and detailed drawings help readers pinpoint the culprit in the woods or in their own backyards. Hauser distinguishes between home remedies that really work and those that can actually aggravate the poison, tells how to treat each poison differently, and explains how to prevent the offending vines from growing in the yard. The perfect reference for homeowners, parents, gardeners and hikers, this is easy to read and informative. Susan Carol Hauser is a writer and gardener who lives in Bemidji, Minnesota.
