Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This introduction to the ethnobotany of the Hawaiian culture before contact with foreigners describes the plants themselves, preparation and uses of plant materials, and how the plants and artifacts made from them were used as food, canoes, houses, wearing apparel, musical instruments, medicine, and in fishing, games and sports, war, religion, and burial. Flat reproduction diminishes the 98 black & white photos offering both habitat and detailed views of the plants.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
