Wendy C. Hodgson
Winner of the Society for Economic Botany’s Mary W. Klinger Book Award, this volume presents information on nearly 540 edible plants used by people of more than fifty traditional cultures of the Sonoran Desert and peripheral areas. Drawing on thirty years of research, Wendy Hodgson has synthesized the widely scattered literature and added her own experiences to create an exhaustive catalog of desert plants and their many and varied uses. Accessible to general readers, this book is an invaluable compendium for anyone interested in the desert’s hidden bounty.
