Reviews

Winner of the Thomas DeBaggio Book of the Year Award from the International Herb Association, 2015

Winner of the Nautilus Book Awards (Books for a Better World) in the Women Category, 2015

"Women Healers of the World: The Traditions, History, and Geography of Herbal Medicine is a pick for health, fitness, and women's issues collections alike and documents the rise of herbal medicine and remedies as it pertains to women who promote these herbs. It comes from a herbalist who moves far beyond the usual herbal guide to consider the works of female healers from around the world, and it uses these women's words to explore their particular approaches - as in the case of Isla Burgess, a New Zealand healer working with the Maori tribal nations. Add a pictorial approach that packs in full-page color photos into an oversized presentation and you add a travelogue to a wide-ranging herbalist guide that will attract audiences from several genres." Midwest Book Review

"This amazing book at an amazing price for such an oversized, gorgeous layout carries the heart and soul of herbalism. A creative, modern format showcases the lineage of 31 famous herbalists from around the world, beginning with Egypt's Hatsheput in 1508 BC. En route, the herbalists who are profiled include Hildegard von Binge and Trotula of Salerno of the 12th century. The book also embraces modern herb authors, such as Teiraona Low Dog and Susan Weed. Photos accompany the descriptions of individuals and locations where they live or that is represented by their work. A couple pages in each woman's profile are devoted to their favorite herbs. Another page delightfully defines a healing word representing that individual. Budding herablists inspired by this work will find a chapter of herbal recipes. My hat goes off to Bellebuono, who directors Vineyard Herb Teas & Apothecary and The Bellebuono School of Herbal Medicine and also wrote The Authentic Healer." The American Herb Association
