"Kelly Kindscher is the plains version of John Muir. Join him in the journey to discover the great pharmaceutical house on the prairie." - Wes Jackson, director of The Land Institute and author of New Roots of Agriculture.

"A superb recounting of the use of prairie plants by Indian tribe of central North America." - Walter H. Lewis, coauthor of Medicinal Botany: Plants Affecting Man's Health.

"Good reading - and a good source book for anthropologist, botanists, and ethnologists,"- James A. Duke, author of Handbook of Northeastern Indian Medicinal Plants.

Ph.D in plant ecology from the University of Kansas and is a consultant for Prairieland Ecological Services.
