520 0  "Umhlonyane, also known as Artemisia afra, is one of the 
       oldest and best-documented indigenous medicines in South 
       Africa. This bush, which grows wild throughout the sub-
       Saharan region, smells and tastes like "medicine," thus 
       easily making its way into people's lives and becoming the
       choice of everyday healing for Xhosa healer-diviners and 
       Rastafarian herbalists. This 'natural' remedy has recently
       sparked curiosity as scientists search for new molecules 
       against a tuberculosis pandemic while hoping to recognize 
       indigenous medicine. Laplante follows umhlonyane on its 
       trails and trials of becoming a biopharmaceutical -- from 
       the "open air" to controlled environments -- learning from
       the plant and from the people who use it with hopes in 
       healing."--Provided by publisher
