As a citizen of the Potawatomi nation, botanist Robin Wall Kimmerer, believes that plants and animals are our oldest and wisest teachers. With this notion as lense she highlights our place in a broader ecological universe where a true reciprocal wisdom is gleaned. Originally published in 2015, Braiding Sweetgrass has become a modern classic embraced by a new generation of conscience readers. The simplicity within is mythic, gentle, tactile, beautiful and totally applicable. A native wisdom profound, pure and our last, best hope.
This hardcover special edition is beautifully bound with a new cover featuring an engraving by Tony Drehfal, bookmark ribbon, deckled edge, and five sublimely colored illustrations by artist Nate Christopherson and new introduction by the author, herself.
