9780881929874: Native American Medicinal Plants: An Ethnobotanical Dictionary

In Native American Medicinal Plants, anthropologist Daniel E. Moerman describes the medicinal use of more than 2700 plants by 218 Native American tribes. Information—adapted from the same research used to create the monumental Native American Ethnobotany—includes 82 categories of medicinal uses, ranging from analgesics, contraceptives, gastrointestinal aids, hypotensive medicines, sedatives, and toothache remedies.

Native American Medicinal Plants includes extensive indexes arranged by tribe, usage, and common name, making it easy to access the wealth of information in the detailed catalog of plants. It is an essential reference for students and professionals in the fields of anthropology, botany, and naturopathy and an engaging read for anyone interested in ethnobotany and natural healing.

About the Author:

Daniel E. Moerman teaches anthropology at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. He is widely known as a leading expert in the field of ethnobotany. Dr. Moerman received the Annual Literature Award from the Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries and the Distinguished Economic Botanist Award from the Society for Economic Botany.

Review:

“Easily the most extensive and authoritative source of ethnobotanical information on native medicinal plant usage, this volume goes far beyond any other reference source on native medicinal plants.” —Choice

“This engaging read covers 82 categories of medicinal uses [and] is an easy-to-use reference perfect for the home library.” —Houston Lifestyles and Homes

“A beautiful tome I can in my leisure over the years turn to in order to expand my knowledge of the plants that cross my path. To be able to add to my knowledge of plants how they might have been used for thousands and thousands of years. . . . adds dignity and depth to the plant, to the culture that lived here before I, and to my own learning. This reference book is highly recommended!” —Plant Whatever Brings You Joy
