The bio. of Nicholas Culpeper, the English 17th-cent. pioneer of herbal med. whose actions & beliefs revolutionized med. & med. practice. His “Herbl” became one of the most popular & enduring books ever published. In the 17th cent., London’s med. regime was then in the grip of the College of Physicians. Working in the underground world of religious sects, secret printing presses & unlicensed apothecary shops, Culpeper challenged this stronghold -- & in the process became part of the revolution that toppled a monarchy. This spellbinding narrative of impulse, romance & heroism vividly re-creates these momentous struggles & the roots of today’s hopes & fears about the power of med. science, professional institutions & gov’t.
