One of the original classics on this subject is still around and still at a great, affordable price. If you want to know how Native Americans, pioneers, and the early Spanish-Americans used many of the common wild plants of the west for food, building shelters, making artifacts, and as medicinal tonics to help bring back or preserve health, this is the book for you. Written in easy-to-understand language and with an illustration for almost all the plants described, it details bits of interesting and often forgotten lore of the old west in regard to the wild plants.
