Only time will tell.  In the meantime, refresh yourself on the fine art of bartering.

The first people to discover the use of tree bark for food and medicine were Native Americans. The name “Adirondack”, which defined the Algonquin Indians, stands for “tree-bark eaters.” It was a derogatory name given to them by their bitter rivals, the Iroquois.

 Early pioneers learned these skills from Native Americans, and today many people still look to tree bark for medicinal applications. Some cultures still consume tree bark as an occasional part of their diet.
