About this book This comprehensive, illustrated study by a leading world authority remains a standard work. In it, farmers, botanists and anyone interested in the countryside can find all the material they need to identify our native grasses and to learn about their structure, distribution and uses. I discovered 'Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants' by Robin Wall Kimmerer years back through a friend's recommendation. I finally got around to reading it last week. I thought 'Braiding Sweetgrass' was one whole book. But while reading it, I realized that it is a collection of essays/5.
