Miller answers the problem of supplementing rural incomes for any region of North America. Many of the plants discussed have long been used in medicinal, cosmetic, food, and floral industries in sufficient quantities to make them commercially important. This book describes these and other forest products, dividing North America into five regions. Each region contains a description of ten common crops now being harvested, with details and a special appendix on marketing. “Forest farming” is stressed to make each crop renewable and self-generating as a natural resource.
