“Imagine raising children in a culture in which gratitude is the first priority.” This is a sublimely beautiful work, an important one. A precious gift. Kimmerer writes of gifts and responsibilities, scarcity and abundance, greed and gratefulness. Of awareness. She weaves together scientific and native knowledge gracefully and without woo; building a path for our future based on respect and humility.
