The Snow/Klein Essiac books – a brief history of “The Essiac Trilogy”
Back in 2010 this website was called EssiacUS.com, and we were selling the last copies of the three books that came out of the Sheila Snow and Mali Klein collaboration: Essiac Essentials (Sheila Snow/Mali Klein, 1999, 135 p.); Essiac the Secrets of Rene Caisse's Herbal Pharmacy (Sheila Snow/Mali Klein, 2001, 180 p.); and The Essiac Book (Mali Klein, 2006, 128 p.). We dubbed it the Essiac Trilogy. The first two books were already out of print, but easy to acquire used, and there were still some new copies of The Essiac Book available...but soon to also go out of print. Searching for a way to keep providing the Snow/Klein books to the public, I was able to contact Mali Klein...
A year later, The Complete Essiac Essentials was born out of a collaboration between myself (Debbie Jakovac) and Mali to combine the best of the earlier books all into one capstone volume. And then in 2014, Black Root Medicine, the Original Native American Essiac Formula came out as Mali Klein's focus of research turned to the original 8-herb formula.
There is another new 'Trilogy' coming....in 2016! Stay tuned!
