November/December '17 Essential Herbal, Table of Contents (Issue #96)

Although this issue fell together perfectly, and is (as usual) filled with really wonderful things, it was the most challenging we've had in well over 10 years.  2 computers acted up, one lay-out artist skated across her kitchen floor on her elbow and ankle, a couple issues with the print and mail, and then fires in CA messed with the IT guy's abilities to update the site.  BUT IT IS HERE!  Whew!  Get ready for some warm and cozy holiday treats.
