Published nearly 10 years ago, Braiding Sweetgrass is a book by Robin Wall Kimmerer.
Her book explores the connection between all living things and our human efforts to cultivate a more sustainable world through the lens of indigenous traditions. She reflects on how modern botany can be explained through these cultures.
The book is a series of stories the author uses to teach, discuss, and explains the connectiveness of sustainability and cultures to solve problems through science and learning. Readers will learn about an Honorable Harvest, indigenous cultures, lichens and cedars, the windigo, and more through several stories compiled in her book and discussed in our virtual book club.
