It was exciting to learn about the Native Plant Preserve on Eleuthera. The late Helen Higgs (Nellie) was one of the first to describe the native plants used medicinally particularly on the out Islands. She wrote and illustrated a book on Medicinal Plants of the Bahamas. I treasure my copy of this booklet and also the privilege of knowing her. Perhaps this will be republished in connection with the preserve.

My company(www.bahamasmedia.com)tried to get Helen's heirs to authorise republication of that book some years ago without success. However, there are new publications in the works.
