Iroquois Medical Botany
The world view of the Iroquois League is based on a strong cosmological belief system. This is the first book to provide a guide to understanding the use of herbal medicines in traditional Iroquois culture. Herrick and Snow relate Native American cosmology to cultural themes by showing the inherent spiritual power of plants and how the Iroquois traditionally have used plants as remedies. In all, 287 phenomena are listed.
"A compilation of 454 plants listed by family classification with usage data collected from about 75 Iroquois authorities .... Recipes for preparation, modes of application, and dosages are given for most of the plants, many illustrated line drawings.... Recommended for ethnobotanical collections". -- Choice
