Called the work of "a mesmerizing storyteller with deep compassion and memorable prose" (Publishers Weekly) and the book that, "anyone interested in natural history, botany, protecting nature, or Native American culture will love," by Library Journal, Braiding Sweetgrass is poised to be a classic of nature writing. As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer asks questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces indigenous teachings that consider plants and animals to be our oldest teachers. Kimmerer brings these two lenses of knowledge together to take “us on a journey that is every bit as mythic as it is scientific, as sacred as it is historical, as clever as it is wise” (Elizabeth Gilbert). Drawing on her life as an indigenous scientist, a mother, and a woman, Kimmerer shows how other living beings offer us gifts and lessons, even if we’ve forgotten how to hear their voices.

A story of magic, family, a mysterious stranger . . . and a band of marauding raccoons. Otter Lake is a sleepy Anishnawbe community where little happens. Until the day a handsome stranger pulls up astride a 1953 Indian Chief motorcycle – and turns Otter Lake completely upside down. Maggie, the Reserve’s chief, is swept off her feet, but Virgil, her teenage son, is less than enchanted. Suspicious of the stranger’s intentions, he teams up with his uncle Wayne – a master of aboriginal martial arts – to drive the stranger from the Reserve. And it turns out that the raccoons are willing to lend a hand. From the Hardcover edition.

It is spring, 1864. Johnathan and Esher, paramours, survived serving in the Civil War as Union soldiers, and now they are on their way to achieve their dream: homesteading on land in the Dakota Territory, together. Togetherness is Johnathan’s dream, just he and Esher, living, loving, and farming their land. Esher’s dream is to have a family. While on a wagon train, he met Gladys and found a mother. Now the three of them will be homesteading. But Esher also wants a wife and children. They meet Bethany and her two children; it is a dramatic meeting. It looks like a family is in the making. Johnathan fights for his dream. This puts him at odds with Gladys, Bethany, and lastly, Esher. His fight is especially painful because it resurrects the demons that have plagued him since he was a boy—buried memories of his murdered mother at the hands of his father, and the misery of cold bones he acquired from his father’s “touch.” He feels compelled to preserve his mother’s legacy, her screams and blood, but to do this he must keep the “cold” he inherited from his father. It is admirable that Johnathan will fight for his dream, but his efforts threaten to wreak havoc on the newly formed family. Something has to give. Something has to go. The adage is that love heals, and Sweetgrass is a love story.
