Inhaltsangabe: Tommie Bass was a pivotal figure in the changing landscape of American herbalism and an inspiration to a whole generation of younger herbalists. Tommie practiced what he preached, living a life true to his beliefs, creating an archetype whose influence transcended the Appalachian area of north Alabama where he lived. The time-tested techniques and pharmacopoeia of Appalachian fold medicine form a component of traditional Western fold medicine that embodies American self-reliance and creativity, which is still evolving today. This book presents, often in his own words, the living legacy that Tommie left us of plants and their healing powers.
Über den Autor: Darryl Patton is also the author of Tommie Bass: Herb Doctor of Shinbone Ridge, America's Goat Man (Mr. Ches McCartney), and co-author of Grandpa Whiting's Mountain Medicine. Darryl has been featured in FoxFire Magazine as well as on Public Broadcasting Service and Comedy Central. For 12 years, he was privileged to study under the late A.L. Tommie Bass, one of the last of the old mountain herb doctors. During this time, Tommie taught Darryl the identification and uses for literally thousands of the plants found on the mountains of Appalachia. It is this passion for plants and the folk characters of America's past that led Darryl to research and write Mountain Medicine. Currently an adjunct faculty member of Clayton College of Natural Health, Darryl is in demand as a speaker on the identification and historical uses of herbs as medicine. A past publisher of Wilderness Way Magazine, Darryl is the editor and publisher of Stalking The Wild...The Magazine of Outdoor Discovery, The Southern Herbalist, and co-founder of Wild Alabama, a nationally recognized environmental magazine. Primitive and wilderness survival skills, outdoorsman, adventure traveler, herbalist you name it and Darryl does it.
