really liked it

This essay collection is a long meditation on the natural world and our place in it. The author melds her training as a botanist with the knowledge of plants gained through her Native American upbringing to create a more holistic view of the plant kingdom. This is a statement on the hubris of western thought and how it often fails to recognize indigenous wisdom. Although the collection is long and sometimes repetitive, what it has to say is valuable to our current understanding and our future under climate change.
