Cattail Moonshine & Milkweed Medicine: The Curious Stories of 43 Amazing North American Native Plants

$19.95

This is a beautiful book full of wisdom and lore. Every land is gifted with useful native plants, and North America is no exception; for thousands of years, people have been using these plants for food, medicine, clothing, shelter, and many other things. This book spotlights 43 of these wonderful plants and gives their traditional and modern uses. There are many that will be familiar, but others will surprise you; and even some that are familiar probably have uses you wouldn’t have guessed! Cattails, for example, are completely edible, can be used for making furniture or as a fire-starter, as a stuffing and a sealant, and even for water filtration. Yucca has long, strong fibers that can be made into clothing or rope and flowers that are also edible. Some plants you may want to add to your garden, like amaranth or passionflower, or California Bay, which is a natural pest repellent as well as a savory seasoning. Beautiful photographs accompany sections introducing each plant’s utility, and every plant included has many uses. Written with enthusiasm and love, this book will open your eyes to the wonder of the plants that surround you every day.
