NOTE Public Library Availability of Braiding Sweetgrass:
  • Braiding Sweetgrass YOUNG ADULT version (2022) may be less available as a newer version of the book.
  • As an alternative, Braiding Sweetgrass original version (2013) should have greater availability as the older and original version of the book, which was also on the New York Times Bestsellers Book List for 2022. It is a little longer and more detailed, but you'll find the sections of the book are the same in both versions for ease in completing the Dialectical Journals.
  • Check both public library systems for availability: LA County Public Library, AND Los Angeles Public Library (you will need to have Hoopla downloaded)
  • Contact me if you have any questions at [email protected]
