Book Description: For centuries, First Peoples in B.C. have harvested a variety of wild plant foods. Berries, nuts, roots, greens, mushrooms, lichen -- all were important components of their diets. They learned which plants and plant parts to eat, the best seasons for gathering them, the most efficient methods of harvesting, and the best ways to prepare them for eating and storage. In this companion book to Food Plants of Coastal First Peoples, the author describes more than 150 plant foods used by first Peoples in the interior of British Columbia and northern Washington. Originally published in 1978, this new edition is expanded and updated .
