Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants

by Robin Wall Kimmerer Author

A gorgeous, rightfully famous book about humans and our relationship with nature. Robin Wall Kimmerer draws on her PhD in botany and her Indigenous roots to calmly reframe the way we see ourselves in the context of the world around us. With love, joy, sorrow, and curiosity, she invites us all to try to become, if not native, then naturalized to the place we find ourselves living, to open our eyes and hearts to the green and growing things in our midst. Plants, she points out, are much older and know more than we do—what better teachers could there be as we struggle to navigate a changing climate and make choices about how we want to live in the world?
