A practiced narrator and an elegant stylist, Gretel Ehrlich delivers her memoir in a poetic voice. Her deliberate pace and conversational tone produce a relaxed listening experience that belies the intense adventures she recounts. The prose shows her gift for language and her abiding love of nature. This audiobook travels to the remotest places on earth. She maps the ravages of climate change as she visits outposts in Greenland, Alaska, Zimbabwe, and Japan, among others. More naturalist than scientist, Ehrlich documents the last of Greenland's subsistence hunters, reports on declining sea bird populations in Alaska, and details drought-stricken Africa. She finds hope in the "re-wilding" efforts in Siberia and comfort in the persistence of ranch life in the American West, as well as her own cabin in Wyoming.
