Dear Nancy, I have a book, "Plants used by the Indians of Mendocino County California" by V.K. Chestnut. The names of the plants have often changed and I think some of the species are also misidentified or else they are now extinct, but it is an interesting book. If you can't find it perhaps I could lend it to you.
