Описание: "When the snow lay deep on the ground, the North Wind came howling from his home in the Land of Ice, and the cold moon shone from the frosty sky, it was then that the Indians gathered in the wigwam. It was then that Iagoo sat by the fire of blazing logs, and the little boys and girls gathered around him." So begins this charming collection of seven stories told by Iagoo the Indian storyteller. Young readers and listeners will love such charming, authentic tales as "Shin-ge-bis Fools the North Wind," "How the Summer Came," "The Little Boy and Girl in the Clouds," "The Child of the Evening Star," "The Boy Who Snared the Sun," "Grasshopper," and "Mish-o-sha, the Magician." Adapted from legends collected by noted ethnologist Henry R. Schoolcraft in the Lake Superior region in 1839, these enchanting stories will delight youngsters and lovers of Native American myth and legend. Thirty illustrations by John Green enhance the text, printed in large, easy-to-read type.

Описание: Spanning the last 500 years, this exceptionally detailed and well-researched guide focuses primarily on the ways North American Indians have used plants, trees, and shrubs for medicine, food, clothing, shelter, and other necessities. The plants considered are native to eastern Canada and the northeastern United States, although some are also found as far south as Florida and Texas and as far west as the Pacific coast. In addition to extensive chronological historical citations dealing with documented usages of plants as far back as the fourteenth century, this book also provides data to enable even amateur botanists to identify plants in the field. Thus, accounts of herbalists, explorers, botanists, doctors, and scientists are accompanied by useful information about the plant's range, common and scientific names, nontechnical physical description and more. To make the book especially easy to use, plants are grouped according to habitat: wet open places, woods and thickets, and dry open places. Moreover, a detailed line drawing of the plant's leaves, buds, twigs, seeds, and other characteristic features accompanies the textual descriptions. Scholarly, yet readable, exceptionally thorough but never dull, this classic reference belongs in the library of botanists, naturalists, herbalists, ethnologists, archaeologists -- anyone interested in the long and fascinating story of how plants have served humanity. "Charlotte Erichsen-Brown is a noted and inspired student of the ethnobotany of eastern North America. She has completed a study of great imagination and energy. Whether on a library's reference shelf or in a backpack along the trail, her work will inform and educate, and often amaze." -- J. L. Riley, Botany Department, Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, Canada.
