How indigenous story speaks to how we can live in harmony with nature without being selfish, greedy, or destructive, how all nature is gift, and how relationships, ecology, is critical for recovery. Told through Native American Indian stories and beliefs, this is a feast for anyone who loves story, but most especially those who value where we live. Kimmerer writes beautifully, enlightening, encouraging, bringing joy and tears, love and reverence, but above all - hope.
It's is such an honour to be given this book. In reciprocity I will say that this book is worth reading, for everyone, but if reconnection to nature, and trying to understand a very left and right brained society that has been created in our upbringing as a species, this book is helpful in nurturing that pathway. The loss of storytelling, the loss of listeners is a large chasm and a vehicle for the dissolution of many people today.
Read and listen and then tell your stories to others.
A beautifully written book. The author writes with conviction and experience. I recommend this book to everyone interested in living well, in being happy, and in being the best human being they can be. Robin's words touch the heart...they take you home.
