From the Author:

This book has been out of print for some years. There are no extant copies available except through used or rare booksellers. I acquired the rights from the original publisher a few years ago, I own all rights to Brother Crow, Sister Corn.

From Booklist:

Buchanan's book seeks to shed light on the American Indians' style of gardening and how gardening connected them with the earth. She explains the two types of gardening they practice: the first method is cultivating vegetables and tobacco for food, religious purposes, and trade; and the second is harvesting native plants, then saving enough seeds for the next year. She describes what they grow--corn, beans, and squash were the basic foods--and their methods for harvesting and storing the crops. Buchanan also explains the American Indians' traditional view of sacred plants and colors, their first fruits and tobacco ceremonies, and their trading practices. The book includes ancient American Indian songs and myths and 19 illustrations. Buchanan's is more than a gardening book; it offers a fascinating look at American Indian cultures and their spiritual relationship with the earth. George Cohen
