Lonnie takes you to the woods and shows some of his favorite first aid plants that are good to use for open wounds, Infected wounds, fungal infections such as Athletes Foot as well as mosquito bites, bee stings and other medicinal uses. He shows how to prepare and use these plants for first aid as well. He also relates several first hand experiences on how his knowledge of plants has come in useful for him and others. He also tells stories that others have told him of how different plants have been used with dramatic results.
