Plants of Haida Gwaii - 3rd Edition by Nancy J. Turner
For many thousands of years the lands and waters of Haida Gwaii have been home to the Haida. Plants of Haida Gwaii, written with the cooperation and collaboration of Haida knowledge holders and botanical experts, is a detailed and insightful record of the traditional uses of over 150 species of native plants. Moreover, it explains the systems of knowledge and understanding that enabled the Haida to use the resources of their islands sustainably from one generation to the next over millennia.
Beautifully illustrated with over 250 color and black & white photographs and 10 original Haida illustrations by Gitkinjuaas (also known as Giitsxaa), this book is at once beautiful and informative, captivating and thought provoking.
