Narrator Christopher Grove proves to be an able guide on this journey through swamps and fens around the world. With a sense of purpose and a growing tone of urgency, he delivers the author's case that these critical landscapes must be preserved. Edward Struzik explores the history and landscapes of the Great Dismal Swamp (Virginia), the vestiges of peatlands in the Mojave desert, Arctic wetlands, and other bogs and swamps around the world. Historically, escaped slaves found sanctuary in the deep, dark swamp--which their pursuers didn't dare enter. Grove translates Struzik's wonder at rare pitcher plants and songbirds, peat fires that smolder for years, and swamps' magical ability to suck up water during hurricanes and carbon during our climate crisis. A fascinating and educational listen. A.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2022]
