More About Lotions, Potions, and Deadly Elixirs by Wayne Bethard
 
 
 
Overview
Powder papers, booty balls, and sugar tits Lotions, Potions, and Deadly Elixirs has a cure for whatever ails These quaint names were given to popular medicinal forms during America's frontier era that were said to cure everything from fallen arches to a broken windmill. Grandmas, mommas, and even certified physicians treated the sick, lame, and unlucky with what was available: barbed wire and horseshoe nails, cactus, pokeweed, buckeyes, you name it. Ironically, a lot of these homespun treatments actually worked. In Lotions, Potions, and Deadly Elixirs, a practicing pharmacist takes a light-hearted look at the most popular medicines from the frontier days and how they were intended to work."
