“The first settlers on Prince Edward Island relied, to a great extent, on the use of herbs to cure many of the ailments that beset them. Their knowledge of the medicinal and therapeutic use of plants came from those used in the country of their origin. In some cases, in order of an assurance of a supply of these plants known for the cure of certain ailments, plants were introduced into this Province from Europe and Asia. Further knowledge was gained by what the first inhabitant of this country, the Indian, knew about plants as a cure for the many maladies of the human body.” - Foreword
