Guide to Indian Herbs by Raymond Stark

Book Description

This well-illustrated handbook describes 52 of the best-known herbs used by the Indians of North America. Each plant is identified by locale, sketch and photograph, and the uses to which each was put are briefly described. Tonics, inhalants, poultices, laxatives, diuretics, sedatives -- there was a plant for every need. Some of these tribal remedies passed -- often in more sophisticated form -- into the repertoire of the medical profession; many others have a secure place in the annals of folk medicine.
