Editorial Reviews

Review

This is no colorful plant guide, but a key to the 150 common plants of coastal California which have been an important part of Pomo Indian life. Plants detailed here were used for either food, tea or medicines and other daily Indian purposes: it's unusual to receive such exact plant descriptions and applications and any interested in herbal applications and native plant uses will find this an important addition to a herbal library. -- Midwest Book Review

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After hearing one of the authors of this book, Vana Lawson, speak at a "Pomo Honoring" event in Sebastopol, CA, I was enthralled by her knowledge of native, local Sonoma County plants and their food, medicinal, and ritual/spiritual uses. I am excited to have found a copy of her book in relatively good condition, though I wish she had shared in some of the profit for it. I can't wait to settle down with it and begin studying the wealth of information it contains.
