An amazing read
Reviewed in Canada on March 8, 2015
No wonder it won an award. This is an amazing book - filled with a magical blend of science and the perspective of someone who has grown up with a love of nature steeped in First Nations lore. This collection of short essays transports the reader to shaded forests while it educates you on the science and beauty of the lowly moss. It is far from a textbook on mosses, though. These are stories about people and places as seen from Wall Kimmerer's viewpoint. Mosses just happen to be the connecting thread. I have shared this book with several friends and everyone has gushed about it when returning it. I will be buying more of this author's works in the future. This book was a wonderful escape.
