"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"--… (més)

The audio version of this book is read by the author and it is fabulous. This book is a little of everything: ecology, history, anthropology, economics, botany, memoir, etc and full of so many thought provoking ideas. I especially liked her premise that humans aren't inherently bad for the natural world and we too can act in positive symbiosis with nature to feed and clothe ourselves. I will probably come back to this one again in the future. ( )

I loved this book so much! Great listen as the author reads. Her way of intertwining personal memoir, generational history and scientific description is simply amazing. I felt reconnected to myself and others and more spiritually grounded through the stories told with such respect, prophetic social commentary, humor and love. I borrowed the audio from my library but proceeded to purchase a written copy to refer back to. ( )

When author Robin Wall Kimmerer, an enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, began her University studies in botany, she found something missing. There were no mentions of the beauty of plants or of the obligations that we owe to them as they give their lives and gifts to us. Instead of strictly following the scientific knowledge of her professors, she blended scientific facts with her traditional views and in the words of one reviewer “captures the true reverence between Native Americans and the earth, the relationship we need to survive.”

Your eyes will be opened to the beauty of the plant nations around us as well as their everlasting giving to humans and what the humans are privileged to give back to them.

Now I see facebooks posts of baskets of harvested morel mushrooms and huckleberries and can’t but object silently within: Did you leave the first and the last? Did you take them all? ( )

There’s some good writing here, but it’s just not a book for the likes of me. Native American religious beliefs may be a welcome change to those that have grown up (and are disenchanted with) with religions from the Middle East and Europe - but either way, I guess I’m not convinced. Good to respect traditional religions and learn about them, but I’m just not a spiritual person.

The author clearly knows science and she talks about it a little bit, but her heart is clearly much more aligned with religious traditions. That’s fine, but it’s not my cup of tea. ( )

[Preface] Hold out your hands and let me lay upon them a sheaf of freshly picked sweetgrass, loose and flowing, like newly washed hair.
She fell like a maple seed, pirouetting on an autumn breeze.
