Written by Arthur W. Whistler

Samoans have learned by centuries of experience which trees provide the best timber, which plants are edible, which make the best cordage, and which can be used as medicines. However, as people move away from a culture based on the traditional use of the surrounding plants and animals to one based on imported goods, they lose a valuable part of their tradition.... This loss of traditional plant lore and traditional plants has prompted this book - Plants in Samoan Culture.

Paperback: 270 pages.
