Tonight on our show, an interview with Catherine Yronwode on the book, "This Amazing Book -- Hoodoo Herb and Root Medicine -- Open the Door to Better Health". Catherine Yronwode presents a revised edition of this essential text, newly edited and illustrated with the classic botanical art of F. Schuyler Mathews. Originally published in 1947, when it was first offered for sale, "This Amazing Book" was a rural herbalist's delight. The anonymous author took the secret of his or her identity to the grave, but the data supplied here about down-home treatments with herbs, roots, seeds, and flowers forms the foundation of modern herbal medicine. Now, on the 70th anniversary of its original publication, presented by Lucky Mojo Curio Company as part of its Library of Occult Classics.
A new and exciting variety broadcast that covers all things hoodoo, rootwork, and conjure.
