I found this softcover at a local Savers thrift shop. It was first published in 1917, and features interviews and memoirs from Buffalo Bird Woman of the Hidatsa tribe, as she describes the tasks of gardening and harvesting in what is now North Dakota. There are illustrations, some photographs, and a new introduction, and all in all it's a fascinating and detailed look at the agricultural practices of this particular tribe. Buffalo Bird Woman's words are sometimes quite amusing, and she includes local customs and stories among the gardening advice. I was pleased to find some familiar tidbits here and there - the regular harvesting of the non-fruiting squash blossoms, for one thing; gardeners have a lot in common even across spans of time!
