What People are Saying About This
Art Whistler has spent decades traveling throughout Polynesia, often with only a backpack, living with and studying the flora and people of these beautiful island groups. His was not a cursory work undertaken to acquire a graduate degree or fulfill a grant requirementit was the result of a deep passion and interest in ethnobotanyan interest that has continued to grow with each passing decade. Whistler has become one of the world’s experts on this subject and has published several popular books on Polynesian plants and their uses. Plants of the Canoe People takes these previous literary works to a new level and draws upon Whistler’s years of field work to produce what will be a ‘must read’ for anyone interested in the ethno-biodiversity of the Pacific.
