Back to Eden is an absolute must, I bought mine in 1990 in Chelsea, New York, it is book FILLED with all the "old" information that everyone is saying
has been lost.
Jethro Kloss lived many years ago and had a huge knowledge, all or most of which is in this amazing book which was first printed in 1971. He believed
in the information and the need to spread the information so much that the book is to this day still being printed/subsidized by the family foundation
in order for it to be affordable. I paid $4.95 in 1990 for a 684 page book, that's cheap by anyone's definition.
And just to give one example his description of and the uses for Cayenne/Capsicum/ Red Peppr is over 15 pages long.
On the title page of the book it is described as: "A Human Interest Story of Health and Restoration to be found in Herb, Root and Bark.
He covers Identification of Herbs/plants/trees etc. Uses of all parts and/or the parts which should be avoided etc etc. etc!
I don't even live in the USA, I was doing a part time Proofreading job in New York when I discovered the book and even though I live in Namibia in
Africa I found the amount and quality of information so amazing that I bought it immediately and when I packed to come home and had excess baggage I
left books such as "The Satanic Verses" by Salman Rushdie which I had carried all the way from Paris and had paid much more for and hadn't even
finished reading it.
This is a book that anybody with any idea of living a natural life should possess! Do yourself the favour! If you don't find it useful and informative
I would be astonished!
