"This book is an important addition to Native American herbal medicine that will be used by faculty, students, and in extended education.

"[Peters's] herbal knowledge extends beyond medicine to food, basket making, technology in general, firewood, aesthetics, myths, and all of life. She shares her knowledge and thoughts with expert help from Ortiz, a leader in the California Native scholarly world. Peters's knowledge is highly eclectic, drawing not only on all the groups around her but also on southern Californian Native plant knowledge, Mexican traditions, and even Chinese herbal medicine (via some Chinese neighbors in northwestern California). This book is extremely valuable for showing the full extent of the knowledge of one such healer and for anyone interested in herbal medicine and food, Native Californian traditions, or a read about a fascinating individual. Summing up:
Highly recommended."
