Yesterday, I read Steven’s latest contribution to HerbalGram, the piece on saw palmetto, and was amazed at the penetrating depth of his scholarship. I also pulled from my shelves some of the books which he co-authored: Peterson Field Guide to Medicinal Plants and Herbs of Eastern and Central North America with James Duke; The Herbal Drug Store with Linda White; and Herbal Emissaries with Yue Chongxi. Just these three of his many books demonstrate the breadth of his knowledge, along with his remarkable herbal photography. What a lasting contribution to the appreciation of all things herbal! What a loss.
