From the introduction:

The medicinal uses of 45 native plants that grow within the southern Appalachian region are the focus of this book. Although all these plants are found growing within the region, their range is not limited to this area. Because three distinct plant populations overlap here, some of the book's plants may be found as far  north as Nova Scotia, west to Kansas, and throughout the Southeast. For example, black cohosh and blue cohosh are found in woodlands of the northern Appalachians. Passionflower and wild yam species are also found in tropical climates from the Gulf Coast of North America into Central America. Finally, there is a diverse group of endemic southern Appalachian plants, such as yellow root.
