It is a fascinating account of how the women (they did all the agricultural work) broke ground with a digging stick and planted extensive crops of corn, squash, beans and sunflowers. Buffalo Bird Woman tells of seed varieites, harvesting, drying, saving seed and food preparation. She also recalls songs, stories and ritualistic ceremonies essential to a successful harvest.
