it was amazing

Recently, I have been generally reserving 5 star ratings for books that I feel change me in some way (or sometimes just really flawless fiction). This book was definitely a reorientation to the world I live in. Robin Wall Kimmerer points out that many environmentalists say they love the Earth, but many are taken aback when she asks them the question "do you feel the Earth loves you back?" This book was the perfect blend of science and spirituality with sprinklings of history. She speaks not only from a wealth of Western and Indigenous scientific knowledge, but also as someone who seems to have really listened to and watched plants and their ecosystems. Probably the best nature writing I've read.
