Gathering Moss

Gathering Moss by Robin Wall Kimmerer

I can’t remember how I found this one. I think it was mentioned in a newsletter I read because that’s really the only place outside of humans I know that I get book recommendations anymore.

This is different. It’s the story of a mother and a lover of moss. A scientist with a deeply spiritual bent. I really enjoyed it. The chapters are compact and move quickly. The author is clearly an expert but it’s the excitement about moss(!) that really pulled me through this book.

I’d definitely recommend it. It’s up there with something by Muir.
