Their precious herbs and medicinal recipes, handed down through generations in the homeland, had been among the essentials packed by families for the long trip to Upper Canada: they were packed in small chests where they were available for use at all times. Once in their new homes, the settlers met the friendly Mississauga Indians and from them learned the native medicinal and edible plants." - front flap. Contents : S.A.
