The book, co-authored by Vernon O. Mayes, provides details and illustrations of 100 plants found on the Navajo reservation. It lists the Navajo name for each plant and ways the Navajos used them in everyday life, for ceremonial, medicinal or household purposes. The plants are some of the most common reservation flora of more than 1,500 species of wild, vascular plants, including ferns, horsetails, conifers and flowering species. The plants were selected for the book by the Navajo Health Authority and Ethnobotany Project staff, and approved by the Navajo Medicine Men’s Association. The book was published by Five-Star Publications in   Chandler. For more information about the book, go to NaniseNavajoHerbal.com or call 480-940-8182.
