More Info
In Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, you will find a Wise Woman tending her herb garden--Linda Ours Rago. She may recite a few herbal charms for you, or fix you some chamomile tea. In Mugworts in May, she shares herbal folklore that has been passed down through the generations. In this book, you will find herbal tales and charms for improving your gardening, health and well-being, and love life! A charming collection of herbal history and folklore by Linda Ours Rago, a traditional Appalachian herb woman who has spent over 30 years tending, cooking, and crafting rare tidbits of fact and fiction about them. A detailed tour of a Wise Woman's Garden is just the beginning of this literary excursion into a world of herbal charms and tales-much of which has almost been lost and forgotten. Mugworts in May also includes a compendium of some 150 herbs and their magic uses listed alphabetically, with information you seldom run across in mainstream herb books. Quaint illustrations are sprinkled throughout. Out of the ordinary-but definitely delightful. Publisher: Quarrier Press. Paperback, 122 Pages. Measures 9"x6"x0.5" . Weighs 7.8 oz.
