Wild Rice: The Biography of Vivian Lillie Rice


This is no ordinary biography, for Vivian Rice is no ordinary woman. Woven through this collection of vignettes are the remedies, recipes, and knowledge gleaned from Rice’s wide-ranging life, from her itinerant and sometimes shocking childhood, her heart-wrenching and humorous adventures as a young mother, and her early career as a nurse increasingly disturbed by standard medical practices. Be it ointments for abrasions and itchy eyes, onion poultices for congestion, or self-hypnosis and meditation techniques, the pages of Wild Rice open you to a whirl of wisdom.
