Author Robin Wall Kimmerer is an enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, botanist, distinguished professor, poet, mother and award-winning writer.  This best-selling book (on the New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times best-seller lists) lives at the intersections of science and spirituality, of botany and environmentalism, frequently inviting the reader to stop and reflect, awakening our poetic souls and teaching us to be better stewards of the earth.

Check out the reviews on Goodreads and enjoy a talk by Dr. Kimmerer on Open Space Trust (available for free and on demand through midnight, Sunday, 6/4).
