My friend (and newly qualified Ethnobotanist) Emma Cooper has started a virtual book club. More about Emma’s studies later, as we were a case study in Emma’s thesis.
Her idea is that participants will read a set book every other month and we then discuss this online.
For more details about how this will work and how to take part, please visit Emma’s blog post.
The first book for January 2014 is Buffalo Bird Woman’s Garden by Gilbert Livingstone Wilson. It describes native American Indian agricultural practices of the Hidatsas (meaning ‘willows’) as recounted to him by the mother of his interpreter, Maxi’diwiac.
I very much look forward to reading the book and hope some of my blog readers will join in on Emma’s blog.
To help I have converted the free file of the book on the University of Pennsylvania web site into a pdf file which you can download.

Or right mouse click and ‘Save Link As’ to save the book to your hard drive.
