Description
 
Rita Buchanan (a.); Paul Rocheleau (photo.). 19th-century Shaker communities were especially successful in growing & selling vegetable seeds & medicinal herbs. Today, when many American are turning to herbal remedies as a supplement or alternative to modern medicine, the Shakers’ knowledge of medicinal plants is especially timely. They studied the work of botanists & “root & herb” doctors to determine which plants to grow & how to process them, & they sold hundreds of kinds of dried herbs, extracts, oils, & patent medicines. This book recounts the history of this important business, with quotations from the Shakers’ reference sources & their gardening journals. Photos.
