Summary
In this book the author, a renowned naturalist examines the critical role that trees and plants play in our world. Long before she began her work with chimpanzees, she had a passion for the natural world. Now she opens our eyes to the profound relationship we have with the world of plants, exploring our dependence on the plant kingdom as food, medicine, and our helpers in the task of healing the harm we have inflicted on the natural world
