A fascinating study and guide, A Cree Healer and His Medicine Bundle is the first book in which a native healer has opened his medicine bundle to share in writing his repertoire of herbal medicines. Providing information on and photos of medicinal plants along with where to harvest them, anthropologist David Yougn and ethnobotanist Robert Rogers chronicle the life, beliefs, and healing practices of Medicine Man Russel Willier in his native Alberta, Canada. Despite early criticism for sharing this knowledge, Willier later found support from other healers as they began to realize the danger that many of their traditional practices could die out. With Young and Rogers, willier offers his honored practices for future generations, and touches on how indigenous healing practices can be used to complement mainstream medicine, improve the treatment of chronic diseases, and lower the cost of healthcare.
