Book, Native American Gardening:
Stories, Projects, and Recipes for Families

by Michael J. Caduto and Joseph Bruchac



About
Native American Gardening: Stories, Projects, and Recipes for Families


      Publisher Weekly writes "Stories about the cycle of life illuminate learning activities in Native American Gardening: Stories, Projects and Recipes for Families by noted storytellers Michael J. Caduto and Joseph Bruchac. Using tribal tales from across the country as inspiration, the authors provide practical information about seed preservation, planting and maintaining the garden, reaping and cooking the harvest."

      Combining the magical world of stories with gardening, Caduto and Bruchac provide information needed to pursue "Three Sisters" gardening: growing the traditional Native garden of corn, beans, and squash. Readers will learn about the relationships between people and the gardens of Earth, seed preservation, Native diets and meals, natural pest control, and the importance of the Circle of Life.

Michael Caduto's and Joseph Bruchac's latest book is an inspiring and practical guide to productive and ecologically-sound gardening. Native American Gardening: Stories, Projects and Recipes for Families is an immensely intelligent book. It brings a combination of sound ecology and Native North American storytelling together in a way that is contemporary and wise.

Joseph Bruchac brings Native North American stories to life as a foundation for teaching healthy relationships with the environment (and) Michael Caduto draws on his many years as an educator and ecologist to provide background information on natural systems and "hands-on" activities for gardening projects.
