The volume of information available on the Native American Ethnobotany database is amazing.  Dusty maiden is a good example.  It has been used by the Gosiute, Great Basin, Okanagon, Okanagon-Coville, Paiute, Sanpoil, Shoshone, and Thompson tribes.  Uses included analgesic, cardiac, orthopedic, stimulant, pediatric, dermatological, snake bite, tuberculosis, cold, cough, cathartic, emetic, gastrointestinal, kidney and tonic applications.  Is it a miracle drug?  Or just an imagined remedy for needy prople in a less scientific time.  An earlier version of Trumpacilin.
