Format: Paperback
This is a great book for anyone interested in wild plants. However, be warned, I recently bought 'How Indians Use Wild Plants for Food, Medicine and Crafts' and was excited to see this book only to find out that it appears to be the same book, just a different name.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is full of details relating to Ojibwe traditional life, and attempts to capture and share these facts with a changing world. The pictures give the reader a greater respect for daily processes of traditional Ojibwe life, and of their art, and allows modern people like me to better visualize and appreciate the inventiveness of this group of people.
