The Ethnobotany of the Quinault and Neighboring Tribes
Possibly the most comprehensive and user-friendly ethnobotanical guidebook available in the Pacific Northwest, Gifted Earth features traditional Native American plant knowledge, detailing the use of plants for food, medicines, and materials. Rather than reporting a set of disconnected and dusty academic facts, it presents a rich and living tradition of plant use within the Quinault Indian Nation. As beautiful as it is informative, this volume sets the tone for a new generation of ethnobotanical guides – guided by the values, vision, and voices of Native communities eager to promote a sustainable, balanced relationship between plant users and plant communities.
