Description

The edible and medicinal plants of the Northwest have a long history of traditional use with some remarkable success stories. Hundreds or perhaps thousands of years of herbal use have been passed down for generations by native peoples. Today we are successfully treating some deadly diseases including breast and ovarian cancers with an extract from a native plant. Did you know that one of our native plants can even be made into beer? Yes, these are just a couple of the amazing facts that our plants have to offer. Check out the many edible and medicinal plants that can be found all around us in this amazing new book!
