L. R. McBride combined his talents as a thorough researcher and botanical illustrator with a life-long interest in folk medicine to produce this book of extraordinary value for students of natural medicines and Hawaiiana. Remedies consist of fragments of the knowledge of the medical khuna and treatments that have come with immigrants from around the world. Instructions are given for finding, identifying and using plants and herbs, including the tools needed to do the job. The fully illustrated text features an alphabetical listing of common ills and the natural products of the islands used to combat them.

Very good copy
