Reviews

"This book is a triumphant celebration of California's flora through gathering: a call to our species to see, touch, smell, taste, and tend the wild through the seasons. Lowry deeply inspires us to honor our hunter-gatherer ancestors, and build the foundation of a new indigenousness with the land." --M. Kat Anderson, author of Tending the Wild
