Mother’s Remedies Over One Thousand Tried and Tested Remedies from Mothers of the United States and Canada by, Thomas Jefferson Ritter
$0.00/FREE 1425 pages!
The following is a review:
Very interesting to see how people treated diseases in 1915. I like honesty in a book, so the first sentence in the preface immediately attracted me. It stated that some remedies might be helpful as a placebo only.
The actual remedies were written in 1915. The book starts with extensive dictionary of medicines and terms.
The book is organized in chapters, each one addressing a number of issues. For example, a section on babies consists of more than 500 questions. The answers are written in plain language, useful and to the point. The section on herbs provides a description of common roots and plants, with recommendations when to collect them, and how to use them. Unfortunately, the illustrations are not part of the Kindle publication.
In addition to mother’s remedies some sections have Physician’s treatment section.
The book is nicely organized with an index, so you can find topics by either by decease or by remedy.
I found this book to be an interesting read. Both to see how things change and what remained the same. My great grandfather was a doctor at that time frame so the reference had a special meaning to me, trying to imagine his life.

Logic to the Rescue by, Kris Langman
When Nikki Murrow failed her first High School debating match she did what anyone would do – she hid in a closet. She found comfort hiding among the mops and cleaning supplies, but she also found two imps – tiny creatures from a magical kingdom who lead her on a strange journey into the Realm of Reason.
There is Fuzz, a grumpy imp with a fondness for breaking the rules. And Athena, a model of impish manners, decorum and spotlessly clean clothes. Together they convince Nikki to join them in the battle against the king’s evil advisor, Maleficious.
In her debate class, Nikki learned the value of logic and reason, but who knew her ability to formulate a hypothesis would help a mud-splattered Knight redeem his tarnished reputation? Or that her knowledge of logical fallacies would rid the Realm’s Haunted Hills of ghosts?
Maleficious’s hold on the king is strong, but Nikki and the imps are determined that the Realm will not fall into his clutches. Will their mastery of logic rid the kingdom of the ignorance Maleficious is spreading, or will the inhabitants of the Realm fall back under the sway of centuries-old superstition?
Castles and Chemistry is the second book in the Logic to the Rescue series. It continues Nikki’s adventures in the Realm of Reason.
