A Handbook of Native American Herbs|
by Alma R. Hutchens (Author)
This authoritative guide—based on the author's classic reference work, Indian
Herbalogy of North America —is a portable illustrated companion for the
professional and amateur herbalist alike. It provides detailed descriptions of
125 of the most useful medicinal plants commonly found in North America, along
with directions for a range of uses, remedies for common ailments, and notes on
the herbal traditions of other lands. Entries include staples of folk medicine
such as echinacea and slippery elm as well as common kitchen herbs—such as
parsley, thyme, and pepper—whose tonic and healing properties are less widely known.
