From personal exemplar essays of bringing up children to love and care for the land, extending out to the history of clearcutting vast old growth forests and back to saving salamanders the author is a brilliant storyteller with the ability to draw you into the lessons she teaches, the trial and error attempts of many to clean up the acts of those who use and abuse the gifts of the earth, and give hope to the disenfranchised people and ecological permaculture of a healthier earth. This book left me breathless and speechless. Having lived the greater part of the decade in the shadow of Lake Onondaga, I can feel as well as see this ecological terrorism. I am moved by Dr. Kimmerer’s call for reciprocity, for us to quiet our minds to learn lessons lost in grief and greediness. This book had me laughing and crying, almost at the same time. I was very moved, and personally challenged by it. It is not a read it all at once Book, but one than needs to be read in chunks to fully comprehend it. Highly recommended 5/5

Absolutely marvelous. Such a beautiful and heartfelt exploration of nature when seen through the heart, and the understanding that all things are interwoven. I've gifted this book to three people already and will likely do so again!
