Common edible seaweeds in the Gulf of Alaska / Dolly Garza.


For millennia, Alaska Natives have subsisted on the wild edibles-plants, animals, and seaweeds, found in abundance along Alaska's shores. In this book, Dr. Dolly Garza, a Haida-Tlingit Indian, tells how to locate, identify, and prepare several species of seaweeds and one beach plant as tasty snacks and for the dinner table.
