"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)

Interesting natural read. Can get technical and therefore loses me at bits. ( )

Beautifully written using the metaphors of the stories of indigenous peoples, and the workings of nature to illustrate the error of viewing the earth as a resource rather than a gift to which we need to reciprocate. It tries to be hopeful and positive but upon reading it, it often feels too late and hopeless. By robbing the earth we've expanded the human population such that I fear returning to a caring approach to the earth can not sustain the population. ( )

Lovely, and fascinating. I love her voice, her stories. I was expecting to find the book interesting, but I wasn't expecting to enjoy it this much. Her views on the Honorable Harvest down to how to weave a black-ash basket give me some fascinatingly different ways to see the world. I particularly enjoyed the parts about language, and how it frames the world - I've found that true for other aspects, as well. So for all that part - most of the book - I found it enjoyable to read and felt that it was teaching me new ways to think, and to handle my life. Unfortunately, the last few chapters she starts writing about places or situations that are beyond crisis and into disaster - and it starts reading like most environmental pieces, everything is horrible and we will have to totally change everything to fix it and and...which only makes me feel that there's nothing I can do, no way I can actually help even a little to make things better. So an unhappy end to a book I'd been enjoying for the brightness of its vision. ( )

Many folks who know me pretty well recommended this book to me this summer, so I was predisposed to like it, and I did. Kimmerer has a very nice touch when it comes to layering Indigenous practices and mythology with the natural sciences, and what she has to say never felt preachy or hyperbolic—not an easy task, I think, when it comes to talking about deeply held beliefs and the need to be better stewards of the earth and its denizens. There was a lot here, and some of the essays were slower-paced than others—I spent a while with this book—but altogether it was thought-provoking and of value, even in my urban day-to-day (which does include raccoons, possums, and skunks, so maybe that's not so far-fetched).
