Braiding Sweetgrass:

Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants

by Robin Wall Kimmerer

Robin Kimmerer, a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, botanist, and poet, invites us to look at the nature around us through her various lenses. She offers us a unique collection of stories, a blend of botany, indigenous knowledge, and personal anecdotes. Throughout the book, she presents her vision of a sustainable environment: acting in harmony with nature, turning to ancestral methods, and teaching future generations to respect nature. Also available as an audiobook.
