Betsie Rood Identifies the Healing Properties of Indigenous Plants in Nature’s Own Pharmacy

Nature\'s Own PharmacyNew from Protea Books, Nature’s Own Pharmacy by Betsie Rood, a translation of Uit die Veldapteek:

This publication is a comprehensive collection of South African “veld” remedies. Betsie Rood supplies the botanical name, popular names and description of each and every indigenous plant species, as well as its range of uses. This book is a national treasure, not only because it collects centuries’ worth of knowledge, remedies and tips, but also because the various uses to which different local cultures put the same plants are listed in full.
