Description

The edible and medicinal wild plants of the Northwest have a long history of traditional use, with some remarkable success stories. Hundreds or perhaps thousands of years' experience with the nourishing and healing properties of indigenous plants have been passed down through generations of Native peoples. Today, some deadly diseases such as breast and ovarian cancers are treated with extracts from native plants. Many roots, flowers, leaves and stems can be eaten raw or cooked, and some plants can even be made into beer. A surprising number of common local plants make tasty, nutritious treats or relieve health troubles. Meet 66 of them in this amazing new book! Chapters include information on trees, shrubs, wildfl owers, aquatic plants, horsetails, ferns and poisonous plants with lists of herapeutic plant uses and a medicinal glossary.
