Book Description

2 July 1986
This book describes and illustrates some of the wild plants in the Caribbean which are used as remedies for illness or have folklore associations. Knowledge of plants and their uses in the Caribbean originated with the slaves brought from Africa and with the Caribs, the original inhabitants of many of the islands. Today, particularly in remote areas of the islands, old people still use many herbal remedies. There is considerable interest in many areas of the world in preventive medicine and natural healing and new discoveries are constantly being made for the use of compounds from plants in drugs and proprietary preparations. This book will be of value to tourists with an interest in flora and to botanists, gardeners and schools.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of information! 28 Mar 2013
By M. Henry - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is very well done, lots of information on uses of plants and some history on were they came from and traditional uses. The pictures are well done but not in color. Color pictures would have been better but you still get a good idea of what the plant looks like.
