Hoofland’s Tonic

Hoofland’s Tonic

There are a number of places in Mammoth where there are large inscriptions on the wall advertising Hoofland.s Tonic.  I became curious about the product being advertised.  I searched the web and found a couple of detailed articles written about Dr. Hoofland’s products.   These are listed below.  I also found many advertisements in various newspapers, books, and magazines in the middle of the nineteenth century.  There even is an embossed glass bottle that held the tonic on eBay for $119.00.

About Edward Forrest Frank

My name is Edward Frank. By training I am a geologist with published research on caves found in the United States, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic. I am the webmaster, BBS administrator, and run the Facebook Page for the Native Tree Society and am involved with tree research with the group. I am the author, or coauthor, of a number of tree related articles and publications available for download from the NTS website and NTS BBS. I edit the monthly magazine for the group - eNTS Magazine. I write science fiction and fantasy stories reflecting a lifelong love of the genres. Most recently I published a fantasy role playing game Knarf 4, available through Amazon Kindle. I have an extensive science fiction and fantasy library and have long enjoyed table top role-playing games. Not satisfied with commercially available games, I started creating my own game variations in the mid 1980's. Knarf 4 is latest version best version of those games. I also write non-fiction. I currently am working on a book on "The Old-Growth Forests of Cook Forest State Park, PA" targeting older children and teens. I am suave, sophisticated, funny, kind, considerate, thoughtful, brilliant, devilishly handsome, and above all modest.
