Explore the rich diversity of native foods found in the hot, often inhospitable desert lands of southern Arizona: sweet fruit from cacti; cultivated crops such as beans, squash, corn and sunflower seeds; wild greens; chiles; mesquite pods; desert berries. Prehistoric to modern-day Native American gathering and farming methods are discussed, as is the important role desert plant foods have played, and continue to play, in the health and well-being of desert inhabitants. The booklet offers suggestions for readers interested in gathering or growing their own native foods.
