Cattail Moonshine & Milkweed Medicine: The Curious Stories of 43 Amazing North American Native Plants

Hardcover

By Tammi Hartung

Foreword by Panayoti Kelaidis

International Herb Association's  2017 Thomas DeBaggio Book Award Winner
2016 Silver Nautilus Book Award Winner

History, literature, and botany meet in this charming tour of how humans have relied on plants to nourish, shelter, heal, clothe, and even entertain us. Did you know that during World War II, the US Navy paid kids to collect milkweed’s fluffy white floss, which was then used as filling for life preservers? And Native Americans in the deserts of the Southwest traditionally crafted tattoo needles from prickly pear cactus spines. These are just two of the dozens of tidbits that Tammi Hartung highlights in the tales of 43 native North American flowers, herbs, and trees that have rescued and delighted us for centuries.
