The earth's blanket : traditional teachings for sustainable living

by Nancy J. Turner

Hardcover, 2005




Seattle : University of Washington Press, c2005.


Renowned ethnobotanist Nancy Turner brings together decades of experience working with First Nations in the Pacific Northwest. In The Earth's Blanket, she explores the wealth of ecological knowledge and the deep personal connection to the land and its history that is encoded in indigenous stories and lifeways, and asks what they can teach all of us about living in harmony with our surroundings. Scholarly in its thinking but accessible in its writing, The Earth's Blanket combines first-person research with insightful critiques of Western concepts of environmental management and scientific ecolog.

I want to love Nancy Turner. Her topics always interest me. But the writing is so boring! Why must I have no discipline?
