Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer

Drawing on her life as an indigenous scientist, and as a woman, Kimmerer shows how other living beings―asters and  goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass―offer us gifts and lessons, even if we’ve  forgotten how to hear their voices. In reflections that range from the creation of Turtle Island to the forces that threaten  its flourishing today, she circles toward a central argument: that the awakening of ecological consciousness requires the  acknowledgment and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world. For only when we can  hear the languages of other beings will we be capable of understanding the generosity of the earth, and learn to give our  own gifts in return.
