Living at the limits of our ordinary perception, mosses are a common but largely unnoticed element of the natural world. Gathering moss is a mix of science and personal reflection that invites readers to explore and learn from the elegantly simple lives of mosses. In this series of linked personal essays, Robin Kimmerer leads general readers and scientists alike to an understanding of how mosses live and how their lives are intertwined with the lives of countless other beings. Kimmerer explains the biology of mosses clearly and artfully, while at the same time reflecting on what these fascinating organisms have to teach us. Drawing on her experiences as a scientist, a mother, and a Native American, Kimmerer explains the stories of mosses in scientific terms as well as in the framework of indigenous ways of knowing. In her book, the natural history and cultural relationships of mosses become a powerful metaphor for ways of living in the world.… (mere)

Viviendo en los límites de nuestra percepción ordinaria, los musgos son un elemento común, pero en gran medida desapercibido del mundo natural. ‘Reserva de musgo' es una hermosa mezcla de ciencia y reflexión personal que invita a los lectores a explorar y aprender de la vida elegantemente sencilla de los musgos. En esta serie de ensayos personales relacionados, Robin Wall Kimmerer lleva a lectores generales y científicos por igual a comprender cómo viven los musgos y cómo sus vidas se entrelazan con las de innumerables seres. Kimmerer explica la biología de los musgos con claridad y arte, al tiempo que reflexiona sobre lo que estos fascinantes organismos tienen que enseñarnos. Basándose en sus diversas experiencias como científica, madre, profesora y escritora de ascendencia indígena americana, Kimmerer explica las historias de los musgos en términos científicos, así como en el marco de las formas de conocimiento indígenas.

This is a really great book.it is a nice introduction to mosses, you learn about reproduction, habitat and evolution. At the same time the author mixes in some Native American philosophy and conservation messages which make the whole read far more personal than the average field guide or text book. Loved it ( )

This was a graceful, fascinating book I enjoyed immensely. Each essay felt so well constructed, and her devotion to her subject is apparent with every page. I found "Binding Up the Wounds: Mosses in Ecological Succession" and "The Red Sneaker" to be particular standouts.

I do wish she hadn't kept comparing moss destruction to chattel slavery in that one bit. ( )

Robin Wall Kimmerer writes with humble authority as both a scientist and indigenous woman. In many ways Gathering Moss is a synthesis of what would first appear to be two incompatible approaches. In the first half of the book a number of her stories about individual mosses are also illustrative lessons in scientific method but later it's a method clearly informed by her native sensibilities. In the Chapter 'The Red Sneaker', about Sphagnum moss, she writes,

This is the spot where you might wish you had your shoes. The Sphagnum mat is mingled with dead branches of shrubs, hidden beneath the soft moss surface and waiting to put you in line for a tetanus shot....I am standing quietly on the surface of an earthly Drum, my feet supported by the floating Sphagnum, responding to the smallest movement , rippling under my shifting weight. I start to dance. In the old way, heel and toe, in slow tempo, each footfall rippling across the bog and answered by the returning wave rising to meet my step. My feet make a drum beat on the surface and the whole bog is set in rhythmic motion.


Gathering Moss is an increasingly enchanting book about both the fragility and resilience of nature, and I can't wait to use my microscope. ( )

A bit different than i was expecting but loved the book. I have always loved moss on trees and rocks but i now have a better understanding of them and will look at them differently now. ( )

Preface: Seeing the world through Moss-colored Glasses
My first conscious memory of "science" (or was it religion?) comes from my kindergarten class, which met in the old Grange Hall. We all ran to press our noses to the frosty windows when the first intoxicating flakes of snow began to fall. Miss Hopkins was too wise a teacher to try and hold back the excitement of five-year olds on the occasion of the first snow, and out we went. In boots and mittens, we gathered around her in the soft swirl of white. From the deep pocket of her coat she took a magnifying glass.
Barefoot, I've walked this path by night for nearly twenty years, most of my life it seems, the earth pressing up against the arch of my foot. More often than not, I leave my flashlight behind, to let the path carry me home through the Adriondack darkness. My feet touching the ground are like fingers on the piano, playing from memory an old sweet song, of pine needles and sand.
