"I am very interested in Green Medicine--there is no other book like it and it needed to be written."
-- Aldous Huxley

"I was especially thrilled to read the Strophanthus hunt details; but other chapters were equally fascinating, showing, among other things, how science sometimes vindicates folklore. Green Medicine should be a popular book."
-- Leonard Scheele, Surgeon General (1948-1956)

"In her lively blending of biography, exploration, and basic research, Mrs Kreig conveys a spirit of suspense and adventure. This timely report is destined to become a milestone in dramatic, science writing. It is also a unique, highly entertaining contribution to popular literature."
-- Frederic E. Faverty, Professor of English, Northwestern University

"Mrs Kreig probably has a greater perspective on the search for new medicinal agents from plants than many of us actively engaged in the research. Every Pharmacy School library will need copies of this book and every Pharmacognosy teacher should assign it as required reading. All of the people in this and related fields certainly will want it. This is what we have been waiting for!"
-- Norman R. Farnsworth, Past President, American Society of Pharmacognosy
