From the back cover:

This is not the usual herb book.  Like most herbals, there will be information about plants, their uses, and
herbal formulas, as well as Native American healing practices. But this information will be embedded in
the Stories.

...it had been a dry summer and the forest floor crackled as he walked upon it.
So the plants were very grateful that this two-legged was sharing water with
them.  As the Singer turned to go back to the ceremony grounds, he heard a
small voice.  He saw a plant that he did not know, and believed this plant was
talking to him. The plant said, " My name is Throat Root. Pull me out of the
ground and chew on a small  piece of my Yellow Root. Keep it in your mouth
during the ceremony and your voice will not fail you."  And so to this day, many
of the Eastern Singers will carry Yellow Root with them and suck on a piece of
root to help their voices.  

The herbs in this book were used by the Native Americans and are native or naturalized to the lands east
of the Mississippi.

FROM THE INTRODUCTION:

This book about herbs was written for those people who want to learn
about herbal medicines and don't know where to start.  I meet these
eager students ar herb festivals, plant walks, workshops, and in
classrooms, and they all seem to have one thing in common. They are
looking for an HERBAL, or book of herbs and herbal medicine that is
written simply and easy to understand. If your knowledge of herbs
consisits mainly of how much oregano to put in the pasta, this HERBAL is
for you.

The purpose of this book is to show that herbal medicine is SIMPLE. In
fact, medicines that are made from one herb are called SIMPLES. These
medicines have been around since the beginnings of civilization, before
the average healer could read or understand chemistry.  Time has
proven that these herbal preparations are effective. It has also shown
that herbal medicines can be made with common, easy to grow plants and
everyday kitchen tools.
