*** An area that students tend to find interesting is ehtnobotany, and there
are some good books out there on the subject:
Balick and Cox. Plants, People and Culture.
Plotkin. Tales of a Shaman's Apprentice.
(I am using the latter two as texts in my ethnobotany class - it's a brand-
new course, but these books seem to be working well.)
Davis. One River.
Perlin. A Forest Journey.
Nabhan. Gathering the Desert.
Joyce. Earthly Goods.
Coe and Coe. True History of Chocolate.
