"An inspired weaving of indigenous knowledge, plant science, and personal narrative from a distinguished professor of science and a Native American whose previous book, Gathering Moss, was awarded the John Burroughs Medal for outstanding nature writing. As a botanist and professor of plant ecology, Robin Wall Kimmerer has spent a career learning how to ask questions of nature using the tools of science. As a Potawatomi woman, she learned from elders, family, and history that the Potawatomi, as well as a majority of other cultures indigenous to this land, consider plants and animals to be our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these two lenses of knowing together to reveal what it means to see humans as "the younger brothers of creation." As she explores these themes she circles toward a central argument: the awakening of a wider ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgement and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the world. Once we begin to listen for the languages of other beings, we can begin to understand the innumerable life-giving gifts the world provides us and learn to offer our thanks, our care, and our own gifts in return"--"As a leading researcher in the field of biology, Robin Wall Kimmerer understands the delicate state of our world. But as an active member of the Potawatomi nation, she senses and relates to the world through a way of knowing far older than any science. In Braiding Sweetgrass, she intertwines these two modes of awareness--the analytic and the emotional, the scientific and the cultural--to ultimately reveal a path toward healing the rift that grows between people and nature. The woven essays that construct this book bring people back into conversation with all that is green and growing; a universe that never stopped speaking to us, even when we forgot how to listen"--… (mais)

What a wonderful book to savor. I read an essay a day. Kimmerer is a wonderful writer who blends biology, environmentalism, and indigenous folklore, and history in one book that is part memoir and part a collection of essays. This is one of those books that you should read if you, like me, are wondering how we move forward in this world as a caretaker of nature rather than a destroyer. This book will be a classic of American nonfiction literature. ( )

In Braiding Sweetgrass, Robin Wall Kimmerer writes something of an action-oriented environmentalist memoir. We hear her story, which is the story of the plants she loves -- both from her viewpoint as a Potawatomi person and her viewpoint as a practicing biology professor. It took me longer than I'd have liked to settle into the reflectiveness and immediacy of this book, and to make peace with its very-much-not-escapism meditative vibe.

It's lovely and long and environmentalist and spiritual and iconoclastic without being bombastic. If you like plants or indigenous philosophy or environmentalism, this is a book for you. ( )

Good advice for how to run your minecraft server.

edit: changing this to 5 stars because I literally think about this book every day still, it has been the most influential thing on me I've ever read scientifically, politically, spiritually, and philosophically. And yeah it's pretty good advice for your minecraft server. ( )

Truly a top tier book deserving of the highest praises. In a time of broken bonds, climate chaos, dwindling biological diversity; this treatise offers a hope for tomorrow and a better way to be and behave on this fragmented earth we call home. Anyone that thinks themself human ought to read it. ( )

As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has been trained to ask questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers and that only when we can hear the languages of other beings are we capable of understanding the generosity of the earth and learning to give our own gifts in return. The chapters Old-Growth Children and Witness to the Rain are special for our area!
