Summary
Almost everyone remembers a grandmother's or an aunt's method for removing warts, stopping hiccups, or relieving the aches of rheumatism. Consequently, the reader will find much in this collection that is familiar. Many of these folk medical practices are older than scientific medicine. Some reflect a belief in magic. Some ever written down, this oral lore has been passed down from generation to generation from the time of the first settlements in this country
