Entre 1760 et 1867, malgré de grands changements dans le pays, des hommes et des femmes déploient leurs efforts pour mieux connaître les plantes du Canada et leurs usages. Un botaniste allemand, qui a eu en mains des plantes récoltées lors de la fameuse expédition de Lewis et Clark, veut rédiger une flore canadienne. L’épouse d’un marchand de bois, une comtesse et une mère de dix enfants enrichissent des collections de spécimens canadiens. Le plus grand peintre naturaliste de son époque étudie les oiseaux et les végétaux dans la région de Natashquan. Trois prêtres canadiens-français deviennent célèbres : le premier pour son ouvrage sur la flore canadienne, le deuxième pour sa carrière de professeur de botanique à la toute nouvelle Université Laval et le troisième pour son remède populaire gratuit à base de plantes. Ce troisième tome met à l’avant-scène 29 histoires personnalisées selon l’approche des deux tomes précédents. Des personnages fascinants nous guident dans la découverte de plantes aux usages multiples et étonnants.
