Rainforest Remedies: One Hundred Healing Herbs of Belize

Предна корица
Lotus Press, 1993 - 221 страници
The work of Rosita Arvigo and Michael Balick to bring the knowledge of the Mayan healers to the Western reader deserves due credit. This revised and enlarged second edition includes much additional information about the major herbs in the Mayan pharmacopoeia. Their work proves that the rainforest has more value to mankind alive than cut down!
