The investigation for this project was undertaken primarily by two campesino volunteers from every participating community, under the auspices of the Union de Organizaciones y Comunidades Indigenas de Angochagua, La Esperanza, y Caranqui (UNOCIAE-C). The illustrated bilingual edition was developed primarily for the campesinos of the region. It includes drawings and latin names of most of the plants and icons to pictorially represent methods of remedy preparation and use. An attempt was made to maintain the flavor of the languages, as spoken and understood by the campesinos concerned. Future extensions of the project include the creation of a garden of medicinal plants in each community. Funding for the creation and maintenance of the gardens is expected to be generated by proceeds from the sale of this book. The book will be sold within the communities, below printing cost. The book was published jointly by ABYA-YALA and colegio SINT-TRUIDEN (Belgium). If anyone is interested in more info or a copy ($10.00), please contact Brij Kothari at (607) 255-0504; 277-3761, or e-mail: bk19@cornell.edu All proceeds go to the communities. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1.
