New uses for old remedies

by Tinamaree (WorldCat user published 2010-03-17) Excellent Permalink

A Healing Grove is a well-written and informative book.

It is clear in the words of the author that she has deep affinity with trees and the emotions that come with deep attachments. She is clearly proud of her heritage and informed about her ancestry.
