Growing up in the swamp, I learned from the Woman. She helped me to understand the benefits of different herbal teas.
Info about Allie: My parents worked for Uncle Bob, who ran an alligator farm. They were paid minimum wage and lived in a cabin that Uncle Bob gave them. Fortunately, my father knew how to hunt and we lived off the land. Father cleaned the alligator pits and feed the alligators, while Mother took care of the cabin. She was supposed to take care of me, but the job was given to the Woman.
