Eagleherbs and American Dragon

If you have searched for Chinese Herbs on the web you’ve undoubtably seen Americandragon.com. The owner, Joel Penner, passed away in January, 2020. Joel joined the faculty at Emperor’s College just as I had graduated and started working there. He soon became a friend, mentor and collaborator.

We hung out a fair amount and every week I was at his house as he hosted a weekly meditation group. Joel, Al Stone and I played in the Emperors College band: Bone Steaming Fever formed by Emperor’s student Natalie Archangel. (Joel played trumpet with his own jazz band as well.)

I worked on his Zang-Fu book, advising and doing proofreading and is when I met John McDonald, his co-writer.You can buy the Zang Fu Book here at my website Chinese Medicine Things for Sale.  

The last conversation I had with him was his permission to use American Dragon information on this site.

His daughter has been kind enough to recommend Eagleherbs to his past customers.

I salute him and all the good work he did in his life. He will be missed.

Me and Joel

Me, Joel Penner and Anker – probably around 1999. (I still had some hair on my head!)
