Detailní informace

Detailní popis produktu

As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has undergone scientific training to inquire about nature. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she deeply values the idea that plants and animals serve as our oldest teachers. In her book Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer combines these two perspectives to embark us on "a journey that is as much about myth as it is about science, as sacred as it is historical, as clever as it is wise" (Elizabeth Gilbert).

By drawing from her experiences as an indigenous scientist, a mother, and a woman, Kimmerer demonstrates how various living beings like asters, goldenrod, strawberries, squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass offer us valuable gifts and insights, even if we have lost touch with their voices.

Through a tapestry of reflections ranging from the creation of Turtle Island to the current threats to its well-being, she ultimately argues that cultivating a broader ecological awareness necessitates recognizing and celebrating our interconnectedness with the rest of the natural world. Only when we are able to listen to the languages of other beings can we truly appreciate the earth's generosity and learn to reciprocate by giving our own gifts in return.
