Never mind the offensive title: book reprints the author's extensive 1928 article on Chippewa uses of native and non-native plants in everyday life, including tables of medicinal plants, dyestuffs, latin and Chippewa plant names, articles on general medicinal practices and foodways, as well as period photos of wild rice harvest, maple tapping, and birch bark toys. Very useful, a little academic in tone.
