Overview

The environment is in trouble. There's global warming, species are dying, coasts are rising, and our demand for natural resources never stops increasing. What can we do about it?

People fight to make laws limiting our use of resources and switching to cleaner ones; things are starting to change. But what if the real solution will come by changing the way we look at our environment completely?

In Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants, Robin Wall Kimmerer gives us a unique view on how to care for Mother Nature. As a Native American and environmental biologist, she brings a unique perspective on how to face our environmental challenges. Kimmerer teaches us to treat the Earth as a beloved family member, rather than a resource we can take freely from .
