"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"--… (mere)

Kimmerer's ethnobotanical work provides an intriguing insight into Anishinaabe science and botany. This work is filled with stories, philosophy and spirituality, intermixed with botany to give the reader an accessible book to leave them thinking.

There are many strengths in this volume. Notably, Kimmerer weaves together stories of her own life and experiences, allowing the reader insight into who she is - rather than merely narrating information to us. Furthermore, Kimmerer draws on a multitude of Indigenous perspectives, not only the Anishinaabeg, but also the Haudenosaunee and Maya. Using story, she critiques the capitalist mode of production and resource extraction - Windigo thinking, which extends this work to eco socialist, indigenous socialist / postcolonial socialist and eco postcolonial philosophies, though she does not use those terms in her own volume.

There are a frw weaknesses however. Throughout, Kimmerer refers to Indigrnous science, Indigenous knowledge, etc. And in some places it would be beneficial to be more specific, such as "Indigenous peoples of the Northeast Woodlands", or "Algonquian language groups", as there a few areas where a generality cannot be said to be true for all Indigenous peoples acrodd the Americas, and beyond. Another weakness is that Kimmerer mentions the "Zaaganaash" as the overseas people, when referring to the 7 fires prophecy - but does not mention the Wemitigozhi. This unfortunately is a common tendency of writers on the American side of the border.

Overlooking the few weaknesses present in the text, this work is overall a great read for those who are ecologically inclined, including eco socialists, ecofeminists, eco postcolonialists, animists, and those interested in an Anishinaabe ethnobotanical book. ( )

This is a lovely collection of essays about the link between nature, culture, and science. The author is a Potawatomi tribal member, a mother, a writer, and a Ph.D Botanist. She lays out the nature of sweetgrass, which must be given as a gift, and then proceeds to describe the metaphor of nature's bestowing of gifts and the obligation of humans to recognize, acknowledge, and be grateful, along with our obligation to put our own gifts out in the world to benefit others. A lovely, thought-provoking book. ( )

As I've mentioned I'm in the midst of reading the Norton Anthology of African American Literature. An amazing compilation, but heart rending. This book of Indigenous wisdom was a breath of fresh air with its feeling of hope. I was saddened by the great losses of these people. Lost homes, land, language and culture. Throughout this book there is an air of hope in spite of the evils perpetrated on these peoples country and the continuing degradation of our environment. It opened my eyes to a new way of looking at the world around me. A lifting of gratitude for all around us. I found it a little slow at the start but later found myself longing to hear Robin Wall Kimmerer's voice telling me more stories. I picked up the print book to help me see the words she used from the Native tongues. ( )

Part personal identity and discovery, part environmental teaching, part poetry, this book was my favorite read of the year. Understanding indigenous knowledge of plants and planting, incorporated with one woman's deepened journey to her Native American heritage was incredibly touching, and the writing is beautiful. ( )

I loved this book. I was fortunate enough to listen to it on audio, read by the author. Kimmerer is a member of the Potawatomi Nation and is a scientist. I so appreciated her melding of science and the indigenous way of seeing the world and being in the world. Listening to her read the book felt like poetry, hearing her say tribal words for plants (and other things) as well as Latin names of plants and animals. I wanted to soak this book in through my pores. ( )
