Note: Jones talks about her Native American great-grandfather from Virginia who passed certain skills down to her, such as his knowledge of astronomy. He was at ease in the natural world and adept at making his own medicine, and taught Jones how to deal with a poisoned wound, how to make a cut stop bleeding, and how to stop a nose-bleed.
