November 2021 Book Club Announcement:
by Robin Wall Kimmerer
A TRUE GEM
Filled with wisdom, ideas and a different way of looking at the world than what many are taught.
We couldn't help feel a renewed sense of hope while reading this book. It made us rethink our role as a part of nature, not separate from it and how we can have a positive effect on the world around us.
"Robin Wall Kimmerer has written an extraordinary book, showing how the factual, objective approach of science can be enriched by the ancient knowledge of the indigenous people. It is the way she captures beauty that I love the most - the images of giant cedars and wild strawberries, a forest in the rain and a meadow of fragrantt sweetgrass will stay with you long after you read the last page." - Jane Goodall
