Editorial Reviews

Anthropology Newsletter
This is a true bonanza of rare and difficult-to-get information that should be invaluable for anyone concerned with native foods in Canada or the US, and for those seeking rich classroom materials.
Claire M. Cassidy
It is a tour de force, comprehensive, current and full of details. The bibliography collects many esoteric sources, thus saving' them from disappearance. The nutrition tables are invaluable....It's exciting to get one's hands on such a compendium!.
Richard Evans Schultes
The two authors are to be congratulated for their presentation of such a masterly contribution. This volume will certainly long remain an example of the very finest in ethnobotanical literature. Its utility will long be evident as a manual for quick consultation by specialists, as a valuable text or classroom reference work and as an instrument furthering the development of the field of ethnobotany.
