This lovely book written by Agnes Walker in association with Timespan tells of the traditional uses of herbs in Scotland.
Dr Walker’s interest in herbs grew out of her botanical studies. She holds a master’s degree awarded for the study of the history of plants in Scotland and a doctorate for her later studies in cancer research.
This book investigates the safe use of medicinal herbs, some of which are powerful drugs especially when used with other medicines.
There is also an account of early medical traditions in Scotland, and sections are included on herbs of aromatic and cosmetic value.
