Native American Medicine, part of the Indians of North America series, describes how Native Americans established their own methods of treating illness and disease before the first Europeans landed in 1492. This volume explores how that contact lead to lethal epidemics for the Native American population. The resource also examines how Native Americans adapted European methods for fighting disease and how they also imparted their age-old natural remedies to explorers and settlers. In addition to physical cures, Native American Medicine delves into traditional techniques for restoring emotional and spiritual well-being.
