Grandmother of Herbal Medicine

I’m inviting you spend a week reading a wonderful book by Juliette de Bairacli Levy, the Grandmother of Herbal Medicine – A Gypsy in New York.  You’ll love sharing her wanderings among the Gypsies in New York as she discovers and learns of many natural cures.
In this richly detailed memoir, Juliette de Bairacli Levy – one of the founders of American herbalism – offers us a rare and compelling documentary. It is at once a travel book, and herbal guide and a compendium of Gypsy lore and Gypsy ways. Juliette gives us river winds, strange characters in the streets by day, rats scurrying by at night, and legions of cockroaches in the apartments, against whose window the blossoms of apple and pear trees toss, even in the great city’s cement heart. In this richly detailed memoir, Juliette de Bairacli Levy offers us a rare and compelling documentary.
And when you buy this wonderful and highly acclaimed book, you’ll also receive dozens of wonderful downloadable bonuses that you’ll lov including a discount on my  Earth-centered greeting cards, CHILDREN of the FOREST..all printed on recycled parchment card stock with a % of your purchase going to animal/environmental protection groups!
