THE SECRET WISDOM OF NATURE Trees, Animals, and the Extraordinary Balance of All Living Things--Stories from Science and Observation

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sean Barrett

Contemporary Culture • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Sean Barrett’s warm baritone is perfect for Peter Wohlleben’s fascinating final installment in his Mysteries of Nature trilogy. Following THE HIDDEN LIFE OF TREES and THE INNER LIFE OF ANIMALS, Wohlleben now considers the connection of all living things. A former German forestry official, he writes with an enthusiast’s thrill and a scientist’s precision. And if the facts weren’t remarkable enough (for example, beech trees “feed” their “offspring” in dark forests by connecting to their roots systems), Barrett’s positively seductive voice will cause you to forget the bread crumbs as you follow him oh-so-willingly into the woods. His clear enunciation enables you not to miss anything, and his pacing allows time for you to say, “Oh whoa!” To quote Wohlleben, “Let’s be amazed together.” A.C.S.
