Teachings of Nature
While not a book only about plants, nearly half the book is dedicated to wild plants and their uses for food and medicine along with traditional gardening methods. Also includes sections on fishing and hunting, names and ways of birds and animals, Native calendars, stars, seasons, and divisions of time. Presented are first hand accounts by a Hidatsa woman and her people's agriculture, a father and son who get lost on a winter hunt, and practical details of a Chippewa forest camp.
