Back cover: American Indian Medicine shows the effect of Indian medicinal practices on white civilization, describes Indian theories of disease & methods of treatment, & sorts out diseases indigenous to America from those introduced with the Conquest. It also lists Indian drugs that have won acceptance in the Pharmacopeia of the United States & the National Formulary - some 220, mostly botanicals, fully indexed here. Among them are rudimentary forms of such drugs as insulin, penicillin, local anesthetics, contraceptives. Included are discussions of treatment of injuries of surgical procedures, & of the influence of Indian practices on American folk medicine. "The definitive book- all the tribes, all the medicines. The author is looking through the windows of Western medicine & Western anthropology, but he is looking with detailed appreciation." ~Stewart Brand. The Whole Earth Catalog~
