Thanks, Mary Sue. I have a copy of that book and it is very intersting,
although I agree that some plants may be erroneous or extinct. I wish
there had been the foresight and wisdom to record the plant uses by the
indigenous peoples before so much was lost. "You don't know want you've
got till its gone".

Dear Nancy,

I have a book, "Plants used by the Indians of Mendocino County
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
to you.
