BRAIDING SWEETGRASS FOR YOUNG ADULTS Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants

by | Read by Monique Gray Smith

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

In calm, reflective tones, Monique Gray Smith shares botanist Robin Wall Kimmerer's insights as an Indigenous scientist, highlighting how all living things--from strawberries to witch hazel to lichen--offer everyday gifts and lessons and connections. This adaptation for young adults of Kimmerer's bestselling book illuminates how deep ecological understanding can arise from acknowledging and absorbing the wisdom of the plants around us. The pace and gentle presentation of this production allow listeners to engage with the material, including absorbing informative asides and thoughtful questions. The audiobook invites younger listeners to contemplate a wider definition of family that includes the natural world, and to find kinship and connection within it.
