Review By: Country Life - March 2009

The authors of this book, Heather Dugmore and botany professor Ben-Erik van Wyk, are no strangers to Country Life readers as they collaborate every month on our popular series Bush Medicine. Their latest book, the fascinating Muthi and Myths, sheds light on African traditional medicine, or muthi, and goes on to explain the uses of a variety of common and less common plants within this context. Photographs of each within this context. Photographs of each plant are included, as are their botanical and common names. Not only is this book highly informative, but it also reads like a story book. Available in Afrikaans under the title Muti en Mites uit Afrika.
