Book Review – Braiding Sweetgrass

Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer is a wonderful book filled with beautiful stories that braid together indigenous wisdom with Western science and the author’s personal experiences. Its stories remind us of our interconnectedness with nature, and shows how a disrespectful relationship with the natural world can have devastating effects and tip the balance of reciprocity – more taking than giving back.

“Collectively, (may) we assemble from the wisdom of the past a vision for the future, a worldview shaped by mutual flourishing.” p. 371
