FINDING THE MOTHER TREE Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Suzanne Simard

Contemporary Culture • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

This beautifully written, scientifically stunning, and deeply personal audio memoir will forever alter your understanding of forests. It's lucky for listeners that it's also a master class in read-by-the-author audio. In silky, rich vocal tones forestry ecologist Suzanne Simard describes growing up and working in the fecund forests of British Columbia. With the pacing and emotions of a seasoned actor, Simard takes listeners through her most impactful forestry experiments, as well as the major events in her personal life, including motherhood, divorce, and surviving breast cancer. The author's prose overflows with such vivid metaphors that listeners will feel as if they are smelling, hearing, touching, and tasting the forest right alongside her as she proves that trees share, instead of compete for, nutrients and resources.
