Braiding Sweetgrass

Braiding Sweetgrass

$ 22.00

By Robin Kimmerer

Drawing on her life as a scientist and an indigenous woman, Kimmerer shows how other living beings– asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass– offer us gifts and lessons, even if we’ve forgotten how to hear their voices. In a rich braid of reflections that range from the creation of Turtle Island to the forces that threaten its flourishing today, she circles toward a central argument: that the awakening of a wider ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgement and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world.
