Turner, Nancy J.

U. of Washington Press

Culture, place, and nature


Drawing upon decades of experience working with Native peoples in the Pacific Northwest, ethnobotanist Turner shows how systems of traditional ecological knowledge can foster sustainable living in the modern world. The native teachings she presents describe a wide variety of methods of harvesting, transporting, processing, storing, maintaining, and enhancing natural resources such as trees, medicinal plants, root vegetables, and shellfish. Turner teaches environmental studies at the U. of Victoria, British Columbia. This is a paperback reprint of the 2005 hardcover original edition.
