This is a fantastic biography. It's incredibly well researched (literally: I find it hard to believe how much time and trouble the author took to talk with everyone, read every archived document, chase down every source), and clearly and compellingly told.

I'm finding this difficult to read at bedtime. I might do better with it during an afternoon reading break.

I love this book. I'm wending my way through it, taking my time, taking time to appreciate Kimmerer's stories and images, her experiences and understanding.

One of the images that stays with me the most is her standing waist-deep in a river, for hours on end, recording the layers of mosses growing on the cliffs edging the river. I love reading about the specifics of her field work.
