Living at the limits of our ordinary perception, mosses are a common but largely unnoticed element of the natural world. Gathering moss is a mix of science and personal reflection that invites readers to explore and learn from the elegantly simple lives of mosses. In this series of linked personal essays, Robin Kimmerer leads general readers and scientists alike to an understanding of how mosses live and how their lives are intertwined with the lives of countless other beings. Kimmerer explains the biology of mosses clearly and artfully, while at the same time reflecting on what these fascinating organisms have to teach us. Drawing on her experiences as a scientist, a mother, and a Native American, Kimmerer explains the stories of mosses in scientific terms as well as in the framework of indigenous ways of knowing. In her book, the natural history and cultural relationships of mosses become a powerful metaphor for ways of living in the world.… (mais)

I wish I knew what I could say to convince everyone I know to read Robin Wall Kimmerer. This book about moss is so beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes several times. She writes in such a uniquely beautiful way that is thought provoking and deeply informative and poetic all at once.

Cannot stress enough... read this woman's books. ( )

A little gem about moss. Yes. Moss. If you enjoy the occasional encounter with a scientific piece, which reads like poetry, you will love this book. I listened to the audio edition, and the reader was marvelous. I love thinking of moss on a rock as the jointvrepresentation of past and present coexisting. ( )

A moss carpet is a microcosm of a rain forest. Its study requires an in-depth seeing. The First Peoples Americas saw.

In indigenous ways of knowing, we say that a thing cannot be understood until it is known by all four aspects of our being: mind, body, emotion, and spirit. The scientific way of knowing relies only on empirical information from the world, gathered by body and interpreted by mind.... These essays intentionally give voice to both ways of knowing, letting matter and spirit walk companionably side by side. And sometimes even dance. p vii.

""A Cheyenne elder of my acquaintance once told me that the best way to find something is not to go looking for it...watch out of the corner of your eye, open to possibility, and what you seek will be revealed. p.9

Read of the Water Drum of the Anishinabe people and see its counterpart in nature as a Sphagnum bog. p 111 ( )

Preface: Seeing the world through Moss-colored Glasses
My first conscious memory of "science" (or was it religion?) comes from my kindergarten class, which met in the old Grange Hall. We all ran to press our noses to the frosty windows when the first intoxicating flakes of snow began to fall. Miss Hopkins was too wise a teacher to try and hold back the excitement of five-year olds on the occasion of the first snow, and out we went. In boots and mittens, we gathered around her in the soft swirl of white. From the deep pocket of her coat she took a magnifying glass.
Barefoot, I've walked this path by night for nearly twenty years, most of my life it seems, the earth pressing up against the arch of my foot. More often than not, I leave my flashlight behind, to let the path carry me home through the Adriondack darkness. My feet touching the ground are like fingers on the piano, playing from memory an old sweet song, of pine needles and sand.
