If you want to know how the Indians, pioneers, & the early Spanish-Americans used many of the common wild plants of the west for food, for building shelters, or making artifacts, Muriel Sweet's book has the answers. Young bracken fern shoots substitute for asparagus, clover for tea, or try a decoction of mugwort next time you get poison oak. She also includes remedies from old-time pharmacopeia.
