Descripción:

Before European settlement in New Zealand, the native Maori people used many natural resources, but mainly plants, to create remedies for ailments and injuries and for numerous other medicinal purposes. The author's interest in traditional herbal ttreatments in other countries led her to study the way Maori had used trees, plants and shrubs to provide treatments. While much of her information came from early records and writings, another valuable source was the older Maori women whose knowledge of their medicinal lore had been passed down over the generations. Food plants that Maori used are also discussed in the book, as are related topics such as ancient Maori history, the Tohunga (priest), ovens and steam baths. The botanical sections are divided into trees and shrubs/other plants. Entries are listed alphabetically, using native names for the differed types of plant or tree, flowering and fruiting times are given, medical or food uses explained and preperation methods outlined. Small but delicate b/w drawings by Lorna McArtney illustrate each variety. Noted British author Hammond Innes, who was interested in "nature cures," wrote the introductiion to the book. He was introduced to "Maori Medicine" on a visit to the Taupo area in 1970. First published in January 1974, this copy from the first reprint in April that year, 142 pages including some early settler recipes using native plant ingredients, glossary of medical terms, bibliography, poisonous berries list and index, Illustrated throughout witrh cameo botanical sketches. Green hard covers with white spine titles VG+, internally excellent, no inscriptions. Colour pictorial DJ also VG+. N° de ref. de la librería

Medicines of the Maori: From their Trees, Shrubs and other Plants, together with foods from the same sources. The Maoris of old suffered from much the same illnesses as we do today, and sought their remedies in the plants among which they lived. They found, for instance, that manuka provided almost a panacea: an infusion of the bark cured constipation, or from the seed capsules, diarrhoea; that the inner bark of the pohutukawa helped to stop bleeding, and soothed toothache; that the nectar from rata flowers eased sore throats; that the water in which flax roots had been boiled was a good substitute for castor oil.
