Indian Herbalogy of North America

by Alma R. Hutchens (Author)




Product Description
For more than twenty years this pioneering work had served as a bible for
herbalists throughout the world. It is an illustrated encyclopedic guide to more
than two hundred medicinal plants found in North America, with descriptions of
each plant's appearance and uses, and directions for methods of use and dosage.
Native American traditions are compared with traditional uses of the same plants
among other cultures where the science of herbs has flourished, particularly in
Russia and China. Included is an annotated bibliography of pertinent books and
periodicals.

About the Author
Alma R. Hutchens, a close associate of the late herbalist N. G. Tretchikoff, has
been a student and practitioner of herbal medicine for many years.
