Description

The Health Care and Home Remedies interviews address traditional health care remedies, prominent 20th century childhood diseases and their treatments, midwifery practices, and other topics that relate to rural Appalachian health care dynamics. The interviews in the collection provide genuine firsthand accounts of how both common and less than common ailments were dealt with during a time when hospitals were scant, doctors were at a premium, and most people looked to the knowledge of their elders to overcome health problems.
