Overview

A trail-guide to the traditional uses of wild plants in the Pueblo world. The homelands of the Pueblo people, New Mexico's Pajarito Plateau and middle Rio Grande Valley, features a diverse plant community that is virtually unrivaled in western North America. The homelands of the Pueblo people--New Mexico's Pajarito Plateau and middle Rio Grande Valley--are home as well to an abundantly diverse plant community that is virtually unrivaled in western North America. Plant biologist and former U.S. Park Service ecologist Dunmire and botanist/anthropologist Tierney have written a book that combines a high degree of scholarship with a delightfully accessible trail-guide approach to the traditional uses of wild plants in the Pueblo world. This is an important book about the region's plant life and its vital interplay with cultures. Its sturdy laminated paper cover and cloth spine provide ideal backpack durability but will equally satisfy the armchair naturalist and weekend anthropology enthusiast. Color landscape photographs and individual line drawings of sixty profiled plants blend to create a book that is visually rich and absorbing while educational and useful.
