In The Earth's Blanket: Traditional Teachings for Sustainable Development, renowned ethnobotanist Nancy Turner 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 ecology to propose how systems of traditional ecological knowledge can be recognized and enhanced. It is an important book, a magnum opus with the power to transform our way of thinking about the Earth and our place within it. Dr. Nancy J. Turner is an ethnobotanist and Distinguished Professor in the School of Environmental Studies at the University of Victoria, B.C.
