Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of PlantsBraiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This may be my most favorite book ever. And I highly recommend the audio version as the author narrates with a beautiful poetic voice that is both relaxing to listen to and exciting.

My Unitarian Universalist book group chose this book. And though I didn’t join the book club, I couldn’t resist the read. Once I got started, I never wanted to quit!

I found this on Libby, and though I still have the Epilogue to finish tonight, I felt ready to review it for all of you.

Stories about indigenous peoples, their origin stories, and spirituality always intrigue me. This gave all that depth to my soul.

I have to admit that I couldn’t listen to this book if I were too tired at bedtime as I was charmed right to sleep and had to re-listen to whole chapters the next day, but it was worth it. I will try to buy both the paper book and my own copy of the Audible version, as I would love to reread this with the book in front of me. Now I almost wish I were part of the discussion. I am sure will result from other minds engaging in this great book.

Did I say this already? I bet I did because it’s true. I highly recommend this book!
