Ozark Encyclopedia

Below are samples from the Encyclopedia of Ozark Folk Medicine project I am currently working on. This work will be a bibliographical reference of Ozark folk medicine and magic, which will combine all of the information provided by historical folklorists about certain ingredients, items, or plants, into one single, comprehensive work.

I am hoping to have this work published in 2019.
