Book Summaries

 

Breast Cancer? Breast Health
What a gift to women of all ages! This book helped me overcome my fear of what I might discover during self-examination. I am so grateful that this book came my way and I am healthier in mind, body, and spirit thanks to Ms. Weed's wise words! All of my questions and doubts were addressed in a voice that speaks for all the wise women who have chosen the path of natural and sensible personal health. If I could, I would give a copy of this book to every woman in the world! Read the Review

Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year
What a unique treasure this book is! I used this during my entire "childbearing year" and am so glad that it is still available so I can give it to my best friend's daughter as she prepares for her first child. I still use the Herbal Pharmacy section quite frequently so this book has a permanent place on my bookshelf. Read the Review

A City Herbal
I never could have imagined the herbal abundance that grows between the cracks of the city sidewalks and in vacant lots! This book details the folknames, locations, historical uses, lore, legends, and uses of 34 plants commonly found in the city. I read this book like a novel, from cover to cover, and would recommend it to anyone interested our green friends! Read the Review

Common Herbs for Natural Health is an essential herbal for the newcomer to the expert. Juliette de Bairacli utilizes her Gypsy wisdom, and decades of studying herbs and healing, to create a book filled with natural remedies and recipes. What a treasure! Her respect and love for the plants, the earth, and the medicinal knowledge garnered from people of all ethnic origins is powerful, practical, and sensible. My gardens and personal health are already benefiting from this intelligent and tender book. Read the Review

Healing Wise
What a powerful book! It has changed the way I feel towards modern medicine, the chaos in my life, and even my backyard. The seven featured common weeds are given voices and distinct personalities. For instance, dandelion speaks from this book with a charming and joyous French accent. My medicine cabinet has fewer pharmaceuticals these days and an increasing assortment of odd little bottles of tinctures, oils, and salves that I have had great fun making from plants I have found within walking distance of my home. The voice of Wise Woman wisdom rings throughout this book and I find myself turning to this book for solutions to my various discomforts instead of calling the doctor. Read the Review

Luna Yoga
This is the first book on yoga that has appealed to me. Luna yoga was developed for woman by women. Adelheid Ohlig clearly intends to bring the philosophy, discipline, and healing art of luna yoga to the attention of women. I have only just begun to follow this practice daily and have high hopes for improved health and happiness. Read the Review

Moon Days
Although women experience "the curse" from their early teenage years until their early fifties, most of us don't discuss it in depth . . . and certainly don't write or read short stories and poetry about the subject! This book, by a collection of talented authors, is for women of any age and is inspired by the wonders, embarrassment, and power of menstruation. Surprisingly, it is a very funny and touching read. I am past menopause and who would have guessed that this book would actually make me nostalgic for that significant part of my younger years. Read the Review

Nature's Children
Surely this is how our children were meant to be raised and nourished! In harmony with the rhythms of the earth, seasons, wild creatures, and plants the author shares her knowledge and compassion. How I wish I had known of this book when my son was younger, but it's never too late to begin employing the remedies and recipes contained in this marvelous book which is dedicated to the simple life and family health. Read the Review

New Menopausal Years the Wise Woman Way
If this book had not been given to me by a close friend, I would be experiencing menopause in an entirely different manner. The purring voice of Grandmother Growth, who introduces many of the chapters, assured me that I am not losing my mind or harboring a terminal illness; that menopause is not something to be endured or fixed, but rather an ongoing adventure loaded with opportunity. The Wise Woman approach to the various and unexpected discomforts and joys of the Change has motivated me to seize this experience to transform my life for the better. Read the Review

Traveler's Joy
This magical book has made me want to shelve my responsibilities and hit the road! The author's enthusiasm and ability to embrace hardship and bounty alike are truly inspirational. I am encouraged to lighten my material load to provide space for the gifts that the simple life provides. Recipes, travel lore, herbal medicine, literary references, and personal observations make this book an enjoyable read.
