Held by the Land (hc) a guide to indigenous plants for wellness by Leigh Joseph
Held by the land invites us to explore our natural surroundings and renew our connection to the land. With lyrical, meditative prose, ethnobotanist Leigh Joseph advocates for a way of living that develops and builds relationships with the plant life around us, viewing ourselves as part of the ecosystem rather than outside, imposing our whims upon it. Her approach, informed by her cultural heritage as a member of the Squamish First Nation, calls upon reclaiming ancestral knowledge and practices that were impacted by centuries of colonization and rejuvenating them for future generations. An 8.3" x 9.85" hardcover book with 192 pages.
