Wonderful book and so well told by the author herself. Am excited to share with my friends and family. Thank you, Robin, for articulating so perfectly the struggles we face on these times and the loss of spirit connection to Mother Earth. I certainly am taking away some transformative ideas from this book and already conscious of the gratirude that is increasing within me for all that is given and am learning how to give back.

Would you listen to Braiding Sweetgrass again? Why?
I would definitely listen again. The words of this book are in alignment with my values and it brings me hope to know others feel as I do. It is a good reminder to practice gratitude, do more for the planet and its teachers, and to not give into despair regarding the plight of humanity and the planet.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Braiding Sweetgrass?
The author does an amazing job of setting up the concept of the Windigo and it all comes together beautifully in her story of confronting the beast.
Have you listened to any of Robin Wall Kimmerer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
First performance from this author. She does an amazing job. Her voice is a little too soothing to enjoy the book in the car without the fear of falling asleep.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
A journey back to gratitude.
Any additional comments?
One of the best audiobooks I have found on this site.

What did you like best about this story?
This book has changed me. Robin some how wove a beautiful story out of what she has learned from her culture, from science and her own experiences. I feel wiser, more aware, saddened and empowered to take responsibility for all the gifts that we were given. She has made me feel more connected to the earth than ever and I feel a sense of purpose and gratitude after hearing her speak.
What about Robin Wall Kimmerer’s performance did you like?
Extremely unique story-telling style. She tells the truth, it's breathtaking.
If you could give Braiding Sweetgrass a new subtitle, what would it be?
Our responsibilities as people of the earth
Any additional comments?
Thank you so much Robin. I feel enlightened and humbled after hearing you. I've stepped on a new path and can never turn back, thanks to your voice.

More satisfying than TV show or movie ever. I gave it a four (not five) stars, because I found the traditional gender roles mentioned to be quite out of place and hypocritical. But everything else was just what I needed to listen to in a senseful and reasonable way. A timely story full of learning, poetry and resonance.
Outstanding teaching. From the heart, honed by a sharp mind and voiced beautifully. Much gratitude for this inspirational work that brings me so lovingly and with compassion to the challenges and joy of living, and reciprocating with that which gives us life.
