Medicinal and other uses of North american plants (book)

Postby Bearpawon » Fri Dec 15, 2017 1:21 pm

I was digging thru my books recently and found a book called "medicinal and other uses of North American plants: a historical survey with special reference to the eastern Indian tribes" by Charlotte Erichson-Brown. Anyways, the author basically went thru very old books written by the Europeans when they first came here and copied what these guys wrote about how the First Nations people's were using the plants. Including the index its 512 pages with the chapters being : evergreen trees, deciduous trees, shrubs and vines, wet open places, woods and thickets, and dry open places. If you like this stuff it's a really good book especially if you live in the northeast. If you guys want me to look up a plant and post what it says feel free

Pretty much everything we need comes from nature but for some reason people think you are crazy to go out in the woods and pick some food/medicine.

There is a particular plant I use for medicinal purposes :whistle:
My grandpa and I go round and round. He says he would consider it if some pharmaceutical company created some processed pill form you could go and pay for. ???
How about a seed in the ground? I don't get it.
