Book Description:

Anderson (research botanist, Desert Botanical Gardens, Phoenix) made six trips to the remote mountains of northern Thailand and brought back information on over 1,000 plant species used by the six major tribes of the region for food, fibers and dyes, medicines, pleasure, and dealing with the spirit world. The information is in danger of being lost as the people are assimilated into the mainstream Thai culture and lose contact with their traditional lifestyles. Includes 200 color photographs. For general readers and specialists in botany, ethnobotany, pharmacology, and regional studies. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
