This jewel-like memoir by noted herbalist and traveler Juliette de Bairacli Levy details her personal struggle against typhus fever, during which she gave birth to her second child, Luz, who had to be suckled by a nanny goat. As ever we are embraced by Juliette's love of nature and animals, and welcomed onlookers as she relates with people whose lives are far different from ours.

Gypsies dance and sing their way through this book, adding their picturesque - and sometime threatening - energy to an exquisitely detailed story that is always intriguing, and sometimes suspenseful.

Juliette shares with us the herbal lore she learned and used in the Spanish Sierra Nevada mountains. You'll find herbs to combat vermin, counter burns, keep your skin beautiful, and many more.
