New Version of an Old Book

I recently came across a copy of this book, Food Plants of the North American Indians by Elias Yanovsky. It was all but unreadable, so I took the .pdf apart, cleaned up all the scans, and ran it through an OCR program to get a more usable copy. It contains references to thousands of plants used by Native Americans in the past. I hope you find it interesting.

Here is the link.

    Can’t be sure; published 1936?
