NATURES HEALING ARTS-illustrated with more than 185 vivid photographs and specially commissioned paintings- explores the saga of man's search for healing products, from the time-honored cures of country herbalists into modern times. Across the United States and throughout the world, many people still rely on nature's pharmacy to remedy their aches and ills. Such use of natural products-leaves, barks, roots, blossoms, and other parts of herbs and trees-is almost as old as mankind. Chapters include:
Folk Medicine: An Enduring Art
Legacies From the Past
Dawn of Modern Medicine
Ancient Scourges Held at Bay
Toward Conquests of Old Killers
In Pursuit of Health
