Braiding Sweetgrass
Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants
By Robin Wall Kimmerer

For me, this was a relevant and fascinating read. The subtitle perfectly captures the essence of what’s inside – indigenous wisdom, scientific knowledge, and the teachings of plants.  The “lessons” – as I interpreted each chapter – are delightful, deep, and oh so beautiful.  This book has transformed the way I understand the natural world and our relationship with it.  It has given me an even greater awe and appreciation than I already held, and I am so grateful for the new insights and perspectives.  I think their influence helps me be a little better of a human being.  : )
