Based on plant lore documented by historical and archaeological evidence, this book relates how 122 plant species were once used as food by the native and immigrant residents on the prairie. Written for a broad audience, this guide is intended to educate the reader about wild plants as food sources, to synthesize information on the potential use of native flora as new food crops, and to encourage the conservation and cultivation of prairie plants.
