1 in stock


Author: Hiles, Harold T. (1929-2006)

Publisher: Self-published

Pub Date: 1993


Condition:  Good.  Binding tight.  No tears, bends or folds.  Signed by the author on title page.  Some sunning to spine and spine edges.  Light edge and corner wear.

Notes: Incredibly detailed, VERY RARE, often cited, badly edited.  A self-published (and undoubtedly self-edited) volume, listing 237 plants’ nutritive values–protein, fat, carbohydrate, and fiber.  The poor editing can be distracting–half-sentences, possessives, punctuation.  The editing probably shouldn’t call the data into question, just the author/editor.  A companion volume  An Archaeologist Guide to Native American Use of Southwestern Plants is also available.  See .  VERY RARE.  If I had to hazard a guess I would say there are probably no more than 50 copies of this in existence.  This is not a reading volume, reference only.
