Reviews
An important book, for it not only teases out the subtleties of colonization from a unique perspective but also engages the reader in the larger discourse of how we interpret cultural landscapes once the culture has been colonized.-- "American Indian Culture and Research Journal"
There is a legacy of academic publications which interpret plant knowledge through the lens of the 'western scientist.' This book offers firsthand accounts from a perspective within the culture that is cognizant of both indigenous and scientific perspectives.-- "Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants"
Geniusz has written a welcome contribution to the growing literature in Native American Studies. She never loses sight of the big picture and her work speaks to the perspective of a native scholar.-- "JoAllyn Archambault, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution"
