Knudtson’s a biologist and nature writer; Suzuki’s well known as a TV scientist, zoologist and environmental/climate change activist. Wisdom of the Elders is an unashamed ecofest, but its tone is generous and open-minded rather than haranguing, and the stories speak for themselves. The focus is on native cultures, their sense of the sacred, and their cosmological motifs; quotes from great scientists head each chapter, followed by short excerpts and translations from a wide variety of indigenous myths. This statement is referenced a couple of times and is well worth a read. ( )
