"This folk medicine book is uniquely American and could have been written (though not so well) by many of our ancestors. It reminds us of a time long ago, when life was simpler and medicine and healing not so invasive....It's a comprehensive, intelligent, readable book on basic herbal remedies....the most delightful aspect of this book is Thomas' personal experiences sprinkled throughout."
