Pip Williams, a retired pharmacist living in Northland, has spent his life observing and recording Maorie’s use of plants for medicinal purposes.Te Rongoa Maori collects her observations on 43 New Zealand plants and health problems that they have been used to treat, colored, interspersed with anecdotal evidence and beautifully illustrated with watercolours and engravings.Much of the information in Te Rongoa Maori told the author by Ngapuhi kuia and kaumatua more than 40 years old told the authorMaori in ancient times knew the therapeutic benefits derived from trees and plants for a variety of health problems but had no knowledge of pharmacology.Therefore, Te Rongoa Maori does not claim to be a Maori manual of medicine.However, it includes an important and faithful account of the information gleaned during a life close association with the Ngapuhi people, and the cultural significance of this heritage.
