A Guide to Indigenous Plants for Wellness

by Leigh Joseph

Hardcover: 192 pages

Author Leigh Joseph, an ethnobotanist and a member of the Squamish Nation, provides a beautifully illustrated essential introduction to Indigenous plant knowledge.

Plants can be a great source of healing as well as nourishment, and the practice of growing and harvesting from trees, flowering herbs, and other plants is a powerful way to become more connected to the land. The Indigenous Peoples of North America have long traditions of using native plants as medicine as well as for food. 
Held by the Land honors and shares some of these traditions, offering a guide to:
 

  • Harvesting herbs and other plants and using them topically
  • North American plants that can treat common ailments, add nutrition to your diet, become part of your beauty regime, and more
  • Stories and traditions about native plants from the author’s Squamish culture
  • Using plant knowledge to strengthen your connection to the land you live on
