THE ARBORNAUT A Life Discovering the Eighth Continent in the Trees Above Us

by | Read by Christina Delaine, Meg Lowman [Preface], Sylvia A. Earle [Fore.]

Biography & Memoir • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Meg Lowman is a trailblazer who rigs up her own tree-climbing gear to explore treetops and insects. She has also built aerial walkways through the canopies that are wheelchair accessible. Narrator Christina Delaine uses her beautiful deep voice and varied tones to channel Lowman's joy in the natural world and frustrations with the academic glass ceiling. Delaine excels with the Lowman's quirky stories; for example, of hiding scientific journals inside WOMAN'S WEEKLY magazines so her mother-in-law doesn't think she's neglecting her wifely duties. More difficult is keeping the energy flowing through the descriptions of myriad scientific studies, and Delaine's slow pacing impedes comprehension. But those who listen will certainly look at trees and leaves more carefully after doing so. A.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
