Mountain Medicine

Mountain Medicine
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 folk medicine form a component of traditional Western folk 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.

"I always did believe that God never did make no mistakes. He never made anything He didn't make a remedy for. The Lord's put something out there if we would only get out there and hunt it." - Tommie Bass
