Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A comprehensive study of the healing arts of the Maori from the time before contact with Europeans till the present. One section lists individual diseases and injuries in alphabetical order, describing traditional treatments and frequently referring to aspects of Maori astronomy and religion. The bulk of the book is a herbal, giving descriptions of more than 200 plants and their uses. References to material recorded in print is given in chronological order. For many plants there is a discussion of relationships with botanical families to which the plant belongs and a description of medicinal uses through other parts of the world. There are more than 200 colour plates.

A compilation of printed and manuscript information on the healing practices of the New Zealand Maori ... does not claim to be complete ... "Maori healing and health topics" ... draws together all the available information on spiritual healing and then directs the reader to the relevant herbs. The "Maori herbal remedies" section includes over 200 plants ... In all cases the exact words of informants or writers are quoted, translations from Maori being undertaken for the most part by Tairongo Amoamo of the Whakatohea tribe.
