As a botanist and a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, Robin Wall Kimmerer embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers. In reflections that range from the creation of Turtle Island to the forces that threaten its flourishing today, Kimmerer circles toward a central argument: that the awakening of ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgment and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world. This thought-provoking contemporary classic from 2013 is supplemented with illustrations, in a lovely cloth edition with a bookmark ribbon and a deckled edge.
