"An inspired weaving of indigenous knowledge, plant science, and personal narrative from a distinguished professor of science and a Native American whose previous book, Gathering Moss, was awarded the John Burroughs Medal for outstanding nature writing. 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"--"As a leading researcher in the field of biology, Robin Wall Kimmerer understands the delicate state of our world. But as an active member of the Potawatomi nation, she senses and relates to the world through a way of knowing far older than any science. In Braiding Sweetgrass, she intertwines these two modes of awareness--the analytic and the emotional, the scientific and the cultural--to ultimately reveal a path toward healing the rift that grows between people and nature. The woven essays that construct this book bring people back into conversation with all that is green and growing; a universe that never stopped speaking to us, even when we forgot how to listen"--… (lisätietoja)

In Braiding Sweetgrass, Robin Wall Kimmerer writes something of an action-oriented environmentalist memoir. We hear her story, which is the story of the plants she loves -- both from her viewpoint as a Potawatomi person and her viewpoint as a practicing biology professor. It took me longer than I'd have liked to settle into the reflectiveness and immediacy of this book, and to make peace with its very-much-not-escapism meditative vibe.

It's lovely and long and environmentalist and spiritual and iconoclastic without being bombastic. If you like plants or indigenous thought or environmentalism, this is a book for you. ( )

Good advice for how to run your minecraft server.

edit: changing this to 5 stars because I literally think about this book every day still, it has been the most influential thing on me I've ever read scientifically, politically, spiritually, and philosophically. And yeah it's pretty good advice for your minecraft server. ( )

Truly a top tier book deserving of the highest praises. In a time of broken bonds, climate chaos, dwindling biological diversity; this treatise offers a hope for tomorrow and a better way to be and behave on this fragmented earth we call home. Anyone that thinks themself human ought to read it. ( )

As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has been trained to ask questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers and that only when we can hear the languages of other beings are we capable of understanding the generosity of the earth and learning to give our own gifts in return.

In this collection of essays, Robin Wall Kimmerer, a Native American woman who holds a PhD in Botany, weaves together apparently disparate beliefs into a healthy, hopeful whole. She argues that traditional ways of viewing the world and the scientific process complement rather than detract from each other. In a world facing climate change; the thorny problem of Superfund sites; and rapidly-depleting, unequally-distributed resources, people should honor both traditions, care for the earth, and start living in sustainable ways.

If you look at all six of the genres I’ve placed this book in, you can tell that it defies description. The title sounds boring to me. I had to take a plant taxonomy class in college. While I enjoyed learning the names of things, I didn’t like learning about the plants themselves. Photosynthesis, xylem and phloem, or pinnate versus palmate leaves? Give me animal systems any day.

And yet I found myself completely engrossed in Dr. Kimmerer’s essays. This is so much more than “a book about plants.” She weaves together Native American mythology (largely from her Potawatomi heritage but drawing from other sources as well), her scientific background, her personal history, and her Nation’s history, leading me to feel that there is a better way forward for our planet. We should be aware of what we take from the earth and what we give in return. We should be thankful for each gift the earth gives us (spoiler alert: everything is a gift). Rather than brushing off Native American ways as superstition, scientists should learn from and study them. She cites several studies she took part in that completely reinforced Native traditions and turned scientific assumptions on their ear.

Dr. Kimmerer’s writing is beautiful and I would love to include some meaningful quotes here. But I honestly would have just highlighted and re-written the entire book if I’d tried. Her thoughts aren’t really expressed in “soundbites.” She builds her argument with stories and leads you to her conclusions and there’s no real way to select any small section as a representative whole. Which is largely the point that she makes about our relationship with nature: we’re all a part of the whole.

The library has a waiting list that is weeks, if not months, long, so I was in a rush to finish before I had to return it and start over at the back of the line. I simply ran out of steam by the last couple of essays so I knocked my rating back half a star. Maybe I lost interest or maybe those essays weren’t quite of the same quality as the earlier ones–I’m not sure.

I highly recommend this to anyone who is willing to embark on a reflective journey of learning about and honoring our planet. If you can swing it, pick up your own copy so you can savor it by reading an essay at a time here and there. ( )
