In this book, information is given on the historical and current uses of wild edible plants for the coastal tribes of northwest US and Canada. These are good for understanding the types of foods that sustained indigenous people. Although there are photographs and descriptions, this is not an ideal book for identification, but has valuable historically relevant information on food sources.

This unique book as a great deal of information about the development of stone tools. An important focus is on the most simple form of tool making- breaking rocks. It explores the development of tools, how they were made and their many uses. It progresses into finer stone tools, but it is singular in its information on early, simple tool development and use. The skills can be the most practical in emergency or fast moving situations. As the full name implies: The Universal Tool Kit: Out of Africa to Native California… these skills were and can be used world-wide.
