 'Braiding Sweetgrass'
by Robin Wall Kimmerer

Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer

Undoubtedly one of the best books that we've ever read here at ROOTSTOCK. As an indigenous woman of North America and a professor of environmental and forest biology, Robin Wall Kimmerer offers an understanding of nature in spiritual and scientific terms. Kimmerer explains her life's work of understanding nature's processes from how mushrooms grow to the intricate life of mosses. Yet, as well as her extensive knowledge of what surrounds us, Kimmerer writes beautifully, detailing how we must take these scientific processes and interpret them as teachings. Teachings of how we can better understand the world for ourselves, by creating a reciprocal relationship with the Earth, viewing life as a gift - a 'receiving and giving' exchange.

This whole book is full of incredible wisdom and flows magically from start to finish. This book will restore your appreciation for every miniscule living thing on this planet and brings to light how we all must live harmoniously with every other being and species. Thus why we personally believe it could be crowned the modern bible of ecological holism - a movement recognising the equal moral significance of every living thing, regardless of purpose or species.
