This is a thought-provoking look at Native American stories, cultural institutions, and ways of knowing, and what they can teach us about living sustainably."A unique and charming book that provides fascinating insights into ways of managing wild plant and animal resources. Drawing on stories and early accounts from Native people throughout northwestern North America and, above all, her own enormously rich and detailed experiences, Nancy Turner shows that these methods have great and increasing relevance for us today." - Eugene Anderson, University of California, Riverside"Nancy Turner has worked with and been befriended by generations of holders of our traditional teachings, and this book is a testament not only to an outstanding career but also to an outstanding human being. The Earth's Blanket demonstrates how science can be used to record Traditional Ecological Knowledge in a way that respects First Nations' cultures." - Kim Recalma-Clutesi, Elected Chief, Qualicum First Nation"This wonderful book celebrates the connection between pepople and the land, revealing that the cultures of the world are unique and inspired expressions of the human imagination." - Wade Davis, author of Light at the Edge of the WorldNancy J. Turner is distinguished professor in the School of Environmental Studies at the University of Victoria, British Columbia.
