“Australian folklorist, Bill Wannan, has collected here an hilarious and horrendous selection of the old wives’ tales, ‘quack’ physician cures and early settlers’ remedies used by our forebears.  In those does when doctors were few and superstition was rife, people depended on the mysterious concoctions produced by colourful travelling ‘quacks’ or cures that had been in the family for generations.”
