Phenomenal book.

For me, this was life-changing.

A beautiful, mind expanding, gift of a book

I'm here to buy extra copies to give as gifts, because that's what this book is. I'll always be grateful for the deep love and connection for our plant and animal relatives this book guided me to. Kimmerer has a way of exposing the backwardness of our modern world without giving into despair, inspiring readers to renew our relationship with the earth and reminding us that the earth is made to heal both us and itself. Elizabeth Gilbert said it right, this book is "a hymn of love to the world."

Beautiful

I laughed, I cried, I was left speechless. This book provides not just the hope for, but a framework to work towards building a better world

Beautiful prose, entertaining stories and a wealth of knoweldge about plants

Kimmerer writes about plants and indigenous knoweldge intertwined withn stories from her life. This book is dense but the prose are so beautifully written and she approaches these important topics with humour and humility. Highly recommend!

Incredible

I loved every word in this book. The deep connection and love Robin has with and for nature truly shines through on every page of this book.

Braiding sweet grass is a book that left me wanting more!

I looked forward to reading a chapter or two before turning in for the night. The author, Robin wrote with so much knowledge of nature, but it didn't feel like a nonfiction book. She explained plants, animals, and other organisms with so much love and respect. Next time I go for a walk in the woods , I will see, no I will observe, all the beauty that surrounds me. Buy this book, it is beautifully written!
