" " ... a Treasury with a wealth of research, Indian traditions, and
personal interviews among the indigenous tribes.
In a pill-ridden age with DDT seasoning salads, many a reader
may convert to these organic cures and cuisine. From colds to birth control to cancer and TB, every known disease,
natural pain, or nutritional requirement in the Indian experience
found its cure, palliative, or control in more than one of these
thousands of herbs. Sage and thyme-ly. "


" During the thousands of years that the American continent belonged to the Indians, they learned to extract an extraordinary number of uses from the herbs and plants that grew throughout their lands. The earth was a vast storehouse, an abundant provider, and for virtually every plant they found some practical use, either for food or for medicinal purposes. "

" There were hops and foxglove, marijuana and peyote, the aloe and the burdock;
there were cloves, dandelion, gentian, mullein, mustard, pennyroyal, prickly ash, rhubarb, sarsaparilla, skunk cabbage, Solomon's seal, wild indigo, wormwood, and literally hundreds of others.
Plants that we consider merely useless weeds were more valuable than gold.
Some were made into soups, others into salads; some helped the nerves, others encouraged or prevented pregnancy; some were made into poultices and others into potent decoctions. "

" The Indians were exceptionally ingenious in the uses they made of herbs-and Virginia Scully, after years of patient and thorough research, has given us a wise and entertaining "herbal" that is full of knowledge, lore, anecdote, and deep respect.
A TREASURY OF AMERICAN INDIAN HERBS is a must for anyone who wants to avoid the ills of overcivilization and let nature provide its bounties and benefits. "

According to the Contents page:

" A TREASURY OF AMERICAN INDIAN HERBS is limited to the Indians of the Rocky Mountain region and this dedication is offered to them in their struggle to maintain their racial identity and moral integrity. "

" As a people, they are choosing not the muddy and often polluted "mainstream" that threatens to suck into its sluggish current the very foundation of our national heritage, but instead are striving to maintain the centuries-old standards of their tribal life along the small clear brooks that, uncontaminated by man, flow from their mountain heights. "

" With appreciation and humility, I salute them. "
