In today's world of pharmaceuticals, we have lost a connection to the natural world.

But by ignoring the potential of medicinal plants, we are losing out on the opportunity to discover new life-saving medicines needed in the fight against the rise of problems in the post-antibiotic era. Each year, 700,000 people die due to untreatable infections from antibiotic-resistant microbes and by 2050, 10 million annual deaths are predicted

Dr. Cassandra Quave, whose groundbreaking research as a leading medical ethnobotanist is helping to provide clues for the next generation of advanced medicines. In The Plant Hunter: A Scientist’s Quest for Nature’s Next Medicines, Dr. Quave weaves together science, botany, and memoir to tell us the extraordinary story of her own journey.
