Bill Wannan's folk medicine: A miscellany of old cures and remedies, superstitions, and old wives' tales, having particular reference to Australia and the British Isles - Bill Wannan Turns out people were pretty cool with drinking snail tea back then. Also, ducks breath cures thrush. You couldn't make this stuff up.Some of the remedies are pretty sound, however, including, surprisingly, one involving asthma and spiderweb pills (!).Overall, a really interesting book, one that's good to pick up and peruse every now and then.
