"This is a thoroughly engaging, holistic, and vibrant book. Every chapter made me hungry for more. Many plant knowledge treatises are thin soup, but this is hearty and nourishing because it has all the elements that Western scientific plant teachings leave out."--Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding Sweetgrass
