Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent ethnobotany study. Amadeo has worked on the Gila River Reservation for many years and has interviewed many of the older men and women who still remember the old ways. He has very detailed information on many species. There is a big section on mesquite, probably the most important plant for the Pima. The only disappointment is the illustrations are in a Japanese watercolor style that seems inconsistent with such an important southwestern book. But, that aside, an excellent book.

I just want to let people know that At the Desert's Green Edge was awarded the Klinger Book Award by the Society for Economic Botany. This is according to an announcement in the members' publication for the San Diego Natural History Museum, where Dr. Rea is a research associate.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
great book to have around for drought resistant plants and how to grow. I was uncertain about some yucca elata seeds I purchased which had grown and I identified them as the real deal. If I could have a second career this would be it
