This was definitely my favorite book I read this month. I loved her book Braiding Sweetgrass so I added this book to my to read list. I never would have thought to add a book about mosses to that list before I read Robin Wall Kimmerer's work. If you like audiobooks I definitely recommend listening to this. Her voice has a beautiful storyteller quality to it and it makes you appreciate the lesson of mosses and the natural world around us so much more. You do not need to have an interest in bryology to appreciate this book. We can all learn a lot from mosses and their relationship with nature. They take only what they need and give us so much. Her work makes me want to learn more about plants so that I can name more of what I see when I am out in nature.
So you want to talk about race is a book I think every white person should read, instead of asking a person of color on social media or your black friend to explain why they think something you did or said, or something you saw in the news was racist. Especially if you've ever caught yourself saying but I don't see color, I can't be racist because....., You're overreacting it's not about race, or even if you've thought things without letting them come out of your mouth.
