IN SEARCH OF THE CANARY TREE The Story of a Scientist, a Cypress, and a Changing World

by | Read by Ellen Archer

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Climate change, love, and the Alaskan yellow cedar take center stage in this dramatic memoir by ecologist Lauren E. Oakes. Narrator Ellen Archer sets the mood by giving listeners vignettes of the many people Oakes encounters while investigating this species of cypress tree in the Alaskan archipelago. After detailing the planning of the expedition, Archer ushers listeners into a wild, gritty world where getting supplies takes two weeks and showers aren't available for weeks on end. Her narration is so realistic that listeners will feel they're experiencing a real-time trek with the author. Oakes and Archer paint a hopeful picture for the yellow cedar's future.
