From techniques for tapping maple trees and harvesting wild rice to extracting dyes from bloodroot and making dishes from birch bark, Strength of the Earth details the many uses of more than 200 forest and prairie plants. Early twentieth-century ethnologist Frances Densmore recorded traditions and techniques relayed by dozens of Ojibwe women to create this invaluable handbook perfect for readers interested in Native American art and culture, organic gardening, natural remedies, and living off the land. Brenda J. Child offers a fresh introduction focusing on the power of female healers.
