BACK COVER #Wild plants have long been an important source of food for people in North America. For aboriginal people in western Canada, the nutritional and cultural contribution made by edible plants has been immense.
Food Plants of the Coastal First Peoples desribes more than 100 plants used for food by the aboriginal peoples of coastal British Columbia. Each description contains botanical details and a colour photograph to help identify the plant, as well as information on the plant's habitat, its distribution along the coast and how it was used.
Expanded and updated, with more colour photographs, this popular handbook is ideal for anyone interested in wild edible plants or traditional cultures of First Peoples living on the coast of British Columbia and adjacent areas in Alaska and Washington.
