Based on 25 years of research that combed every historical and anthropological record of Native American ways, this unprecedented culinary dictionary documents the food uses of 1500 plants by 220 Native American tribes from early times to the present. Like anthropologist Daniel E. Moerman's previous volume, Native American Medicinal Plants, this extensive compilation draws on the same research as his monumental Native American Ethnobotany, this time culling 32 categories of food uses from an extraordinary range of species. Hundreds of plants, both native and introduced, are described. The usage categories include beverages, breads, fruits, spices, desserts, snacks, dried foods, and condiments, as well as curdling agents, dietary aids,Ê preservatives, and even foods specifically for emergencies. Each example of tribal use includes a brief description of how the food was prepared. In addition, multiple indexes are arranged by tribe, type of food, and common names to make it easy to pursue specific research. An essential reference for anthropologists, ethnobotanists, and food scientists, this will also make fascinating reading for anyone interested in the history of wild and cultivated local foods and the remarkable practical botanical knowledge of Native American forbears.

Many North American plants have characteristics that are especially promising for creating varieties needed to expand food production, and there are excellent prospects of generating new economically competitive crops from these natives. The inadequacy of current crops to meet the food demands of the world’s huge, growing population makes the potential of indigenous North American food plants even more significant. These plants can also generate crops that are more compatible with the ecology of the world, and many also have inherent health benefits. Presenting detailed scholarship, a thoroughly accessible style, and numerous entertaining anecdotes, North American Cornucopia: Top 100 Indigenous Food Plants is a full-color book dedicated to the most important 100 native food plants of North America north of Mexico that have achieved commercial success or have substantial market potential. The introductory chapter reviews the historical development of North American indigenous crops and factors bearing on their future economic success. The rest of the book consists of 100 chapters, each dedicated to a particular crop. The book employs a user-friendly chapter format that presents the material in sections offering in-depth coverage of each plant. The first section of each chapter provides information on the scientific and English names of the plants, followed by a section on the geography and ecology of the wild forms, accompanied by a map showing the North American distribution. A section entitled "Plant Portrait" comprises a basic description of the plant, its history, and its economic and social importance. This is followed by "Culinary Portrait," concerned with food uses and culinary vocabulary. The chapters then provide an analysis of the economic future of each crop, discuss notable and interesting scientific or technological observations and accomplishments, and present extensive references.

Heilgeheimnisse aus dem Regenwald und moderne Wissenschaft. Alberto Villoldo ist einer der bekanntesten und meistgelesenen Schamanen unserer Zeit. Als er eine niederschmetternde Diagnose bekommt – fünf verschiedene Arten von Hepatitis, toxische Bakterien im gesamten Körper und Parasiten im Gehirn – ist er dem Tode nah. Zum ersten Mal in seinem Leben steht er vor der Herausforderung, das Wissen, das er seit Jahrzehnten selbst lehrt, radikal an sich selbst anzuwenden. Mit Erfolg! Villoldo hat sich selbst geheilt – mit One Spirit Medizin, einer höchst wirksamen Synthese aus uralten schamanischen Methoden wie Fasten, Meditieren und Visionssuche und aktuellsten Erkenntnissen aus der modernen Wissenschaft. Diese umfassen das Entgiften von Körper und Geist durch Superfoods und Nahrungsergänzungsmittel, das Ausschalten der »Todesuhr« in unseren Zellen durch Beeinflussung der Mitochondrien, Energiearbeit zur Reparatur von Gehirn und Körper auf Quantenebene und eine revolutionäre Methode, in nur sechs Wochen einen grunderneuerten, vitalen und widerstandsfähigen Körper zu kreieren. Mit One Spirit Medizin gelingt Villoldo der lange überfällige Brückenschlag vom Jahrtausende alten schamanischen Erfahrungsschatz zu mordernsten medizinischen Erkenntnissen. Mit vielen Übungen und Rezepten.
