Healing Plants: Medicine of the Florida Seminole Indians by Alice Micco Snow.   While the cures sometimes border on the superstitious, it's a neat glimpse into Seminole Indian medicinal plants and ritual use, past and present.

Sacred Plant Medicine: the Wisdom in Native American Herbalism By Stephen Harrod Buhner, Brook Medicine Eagle.   I found this book to be too new agey for my tastes (which is saying alot) but there are some pearls of wisdom in there if you're persistent.

Visionary Plant Consciousness: The Shamanic Teachings of the Plant World, various contributors including Dennis and Terence McKenna, Andrew Weil, Wade Davis, etc.   I really enjoyed reading this book.  The topics are as diverse as the opinions expressed about them.  A must for every ethnobotanists literary arsenal, or even just to read on the john.

I've been on a kick lately so I'll add more titles as I read em.
