An international and New York Times best-seller with over 2 million copies sold, for the first time in Spanish language in the US.

By the botanist and member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass has become a fundamental read during the last decade. Bringing together the author’s scientific training with her indigenous wisdom, it presents the knowledge of plants and animals as invaluable life lessons from our oldest teachers. With captivating storytelling that draws on her life as a scientist, indigenous, woman, and mother, Wall Kimmerer circles toward a central argument—awakening ecological consciousness requires acknowledging and celebrating our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world.

With over two million copies sold worldwide and translated into twenty languages, this marks the first time this international best-seller will be published in Spanish language in the US. For readers of The Four Agreements, Paulo Coelho, and anyone interested in nature, ecology, and new insightful perspectives on spirituality.
