Jude's Herbal Home Remedies.

Jude's Herbal Home Remedies, by Jude C Williams, M.H., 297 pages, paper, indexed, $9.95, Llewellyn Publications, POB 64383-869, St. Paul MN 55164-0383.

Author Jude Williams.sent us a copy of this book, saying she's a new Countryside subscriber, she noticed that many of our correspondents are interested in herbal remedies, and she felt her book might help some of them.

We think she's right.

As with most reference books of this nature, not many people will sit down and read it from front to back, like a novel. The 14 chapter divisions and excellent index make it easy to find information that's of special personal interest.

And yet, this book is most readable. Even if you have no particular need or desire to know that a poultice of violet leaves and flowers can be used to treat varicose veins, or that honey on a gauze pad will heal bed sores, reading the chapter introductions is more than worth the time and effort. And of course, when you're looking for a treatment for bed sores--or any of about 800 other uses for herbs given here--it'll be easy to find.

Anyone with a real interest in herbal remedies will almost certainly read the entire book. And anyone who just wants to check out an herbal remedy for a specific condition on occasion will find this book an excellent source of information and help.
