Tap into Thousands of Years of Plant Knowledge

The belief that all life-forms are interconnected and share the same breath--known in the Rar muri tribe as iw gara--has resulted in a treasury of knowledge about the natural world, passed down for millennia by native cultures. Ethnobotanist Enrique Salm n builds on this concept of connection and highlights 80 plants revered by North America's indigenous peoples. Salm n teaches us the ways plants are used as food and medicine, the details of their identification and harvest, their important health benefits, plus their role in traditional stories and myths. Discover in these pages how the timeless wisdom of iw gara can enhance your own kinship with the natural world.
