Through vignettes of background information drawn from lore and cultural traditions and interviews with tribal elders, 'Wild Plants and Native Peoples of the Four Corners' describes uses for edible, medicinal, and dye plants, as well as plants used for making baskets, tools, and shelters. Complementing these essays are profiles of fifty new trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, and grasses common to traditional Native America.
