Nature. Sociology. Nonfiction. 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.… (mere)

This is a set of pieces that Kimmerer seems to have written over a period of 15-20 years. Individually they range from heart-tugging, to enraging, to wonder-inspiring, to thought-provoking. Collectively, they are all exceptionally well written. Once I re-read this (as I almost certainly will), I will change the rating to 5 stars.
[Audiobook note: Kimmerer, herself, narrates the book. This was an excellent decision on the part of the producers. Her delivery is every bit as good as her writing.]
(Second-reading note: still great. Maybe even better.) ( )

Such a great read. Robin flows between scientific analysis to beautiful prose to love letters for her daughters. She makes indigenous culture and story approachable for those who are not aware, and is a great introduction to these people. ( )

Braiding Sweetgrass is a beautiful and ever-important book on our duty as humans to take care of the Earth. Oscillating between non-fiction, memoir, and indigenous spirituality, Kimmerer shows the importance of gratitude to what nature gives us and our responsibility to take care of it.

Using sweetgrass as a metaphor for how the Earth used to be, how it is now, and where it can go from here helped show how we have a choice to make in how we treat the world around us and how this choice will affect the world we live in. I loved the incorporation of stories of her personal life and indigenous mythology, as it really seemed to bring it all together by making it more personal and real in how it read.

There are times when this book does seem to drag on a bit, but it feels intentional since she is writing primarily to an audience that doesn't often show down and appreciate, this book in a way forces you to do that. Additionally, it is filled with such gorgeous prose that it was still easy for me to be brought into what she was showing. There is a lot that can be learned from this book, and it is definitely one I will revisit again. ( )

[Preface] Hold out your hands and let me lay upon them a sheaf of freshly picked sweetgrass, loose and flowing, like newly washed hair.
