Leonora Scott Muse Curtin first came to New Mexico from New York in 1889. She was an avid naturalist, who spoke fluent Spanish, and became interested in plants with medicinal and nutritional values used by Native Americans and early Spanish settlers. She quickly became fascinated with the healing skills of the curanderas, who used naturally growing herbs to treat the sick and injured. "Healing Herbs of the Upper Rio Grande" compiles Curtin's research from time spent in the mountain villages of Northern New Mexico. (Inventory #: 16819)
