Edible & Medicinal Plants of the Northwest
Alaska, Western Canada & the Northwestern United States
J. Duane Sept
Learn about sixty-six edible and/or medicinal plants growing wild in the Northwest. The Northwest's edible and medicinal wild plants have been used for thousands of years. This vast human experience with the nourishing and healing properties of the native flora has been passed down through generations of indigenous peoples. Today, some deadly diseases such as breast and ovarian cancers are treated with extracts from native plants. Many roots, flowers, leaves and stems can be eaten raw or cooked, and some plants can even be made into beer. A surprising number of common local plants make tasty, nutritious treats or relieve health troubles.
