Our Braiding Sweetgrass Gift Set includes the newly released, special edition of Braiding Sweetgrassby Robin Wall Kimmerer and a traditional 24" long braid of Native Sweetgrass. We celebrate and honor this beloved book as an object of meaning that will last the ages. Bound with a beautiful new textural cover, this new edition includes a bookmark ribbon, a deckled edge, and five brilliantly colored illustrations by artist Nate Christopherson.
In increasingly dark times, we honor the experience that more than 350,000 readers in North America have cherished about the book―gentle, simple, tactile, beautiful, even sacred― spreading the word about scientific knowledge, indigenous wisdom, and the teachings of plants.
Drawing on her life as an indigenous scientist, and as a woman, Kimmerer shows how other living beings―asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass―offer us gifts and lessons, even if we've forgotten how to hear their voices. In reflections that range from the creation of Turtle Island to the forces that threaten its flourishing today, she 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. For only when we can hear the languages of other beings will we be capable of understanding the generosity of the earth, and learn to give our own gifts in return.
