This book describes and illustrates some of the wild plants in the Caribbean which are used as remedies for illness or have folklore associations. Knowledge of plants and their uses in the Caribbean originated with the slaves brought from Africa and with the Caribs, the original inhabitants of many of the islands. Today, particularly in remote areas of the islands, old people still use many herbal remidies. There is considerable interest in many areas of the world in preventive medicine and natural healing and new discoveries are constantly being made for the use of compounds from plants in drugs and proprietary preparations. This book will be of value to tourists with an interest in flora and to botanists, gardeners and schools.
