The Lost Language of Plants by Stephen Harrod Buhner
The Lost Language of Plants is subtitled The Ecological Importance of Plant Medicines to Life on Earth. As described by Buhner in the “Note to Reader”, the book is designed to be a “book of feelings as well as thoughts.” He goes on to say “I don’t believe we can solve the environmental problems facing us unless we develop our capacity for feeling and our empathy for other life-forms to the same degree that we have developed our facility of thought.”
From its factual, deep exploration of the devastation human intervention has brought to this planet to the touching and intimate stories Buhner shares with us from his own experience, this book is a gem that you will turn to over and over again.
This fabulous book really has shaped my thinking and my life, and I owe a debt of gratitude to Buhner for all he has contributed to my life through this brilliant book.
