remarkable book. "Braiding Sweetgrass" by Robin Wall Kimmerer

subtitle "Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teaching of Plants

I've been reading it to my wife in chapters, and we're nearly done. It is one of the more thought provoking, important books I've read in a long time. It really highlights how so many people are living utterly separated from nature, from our world.

1. Wonderful book.

I purchased it in Kindle. I have been enjoying it by reading little bits at a time. Highly recommended.

3. I suspect it is one of those life changing books - there is so much in it to ponder

that we will reread it often. Such great lessons to live by.

5. Yes indeed!

It was on my "to read" list for quite a while, but I finally got around to it earlier this year. Her approach is pretty gentle, but the book is partly a critique of the U.S. and capitalism (and a rather pointed one, at that), which I wasn't expecting when I picked it up.
