About the Author
Juliette de Bairacli Levy is a world renowned herbalist, author, breeder of Afghan hounds, friend of the Gypsies, traveller in search of herbal wisdom, and the pioneer of holistic veterinary medicine. Juliette has a long record of spectacular cures to her credit and the books she has written have been a vital inspiration for the present day herbal renaissance.
Juliette was born on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11 month, almost in 1911 (actually 1912) in Manchester, England. Her parents were Jewish - her mother from Egypt and her father from Turkey. Juliette was raised in a household with three sisters and two brothers, a nanny, chauffeur, maid and gardener. She was educated at Lowther College, one of the best girls schools in Britain, and went on to study veterinary medicine at the Universities of Manchester and Liverpool. However, Juliette did not approve of the vivisection and animal experimentation that was going on in the universities in the name of science and health. So she left university after two years and went to study with the Gypsies and peasants of the world.
For the past many years Juliette has been coming to America every summer to give lectures, workshops and seminars on herbal medicine. In America she has become recognized as the grandmother of today's herbal renaissance. In 1998 at their HerbFest in Iowa, Frontier Herbs presented Juliette with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her contribution to the herb world. Ash Tree Publishing is honored to offer to you three of her most popular books and her "Juliette of the Herbs" video, enjoy!

Author; On Being God: Beyond Your Life's Purpose
The excitement and adventure in this book is spellbinding. It put me on the edge of my seat at times (political situations almost gone deadly!).
What I like most about Juliette's amazing experiences is that they are true. I just can't imagine living the lifestyle of a Gypsy in those times.
These memoirs provide an insight into how people lived in a more simple time, living off the land.
I have added this excellent book to my botanical library. Even though "Summer of Galilee" is not an herbal reference guide,it is sprinkled with information on plants (mint, marjoram, chicory, etc.) and their use in healing common ailments.
Juliette's "Common Herbs for Natural Health" is one of my regular herbal reference guides, for people and pets.
I love the photos in his book; they helped me to identify with her Bohemian lifestyle. My favorite photo is the one of the Gypsies.
I also enjoyed seeing her two small children, her Afghan hound, goats, sheep, and old temples, new friends she met along the way, and two great images of Juliette with a deep tan.
She truly was a remarkable woman.
I often refer to her books and am watching Ash Tree Publishing [...], to see when more of her books/photo journals, will be published, if any.
