FEN, BOG & SWAMP A Short History of Peatland Destruction and Its Role in the Climate Crisis

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Gabra Zackman

Contemporary Culture • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Gabra Zackman’s intelligent performance of this eloquent audiobook encourages listeners to absorb its powerful message. As Zackman narrates with exquisite timing and thoughtful pacing, listeners learn much from Proulx’s longtime focus on the wetter world. Unlike that of a pure scientist, Proulx’s prose sparkles and is enlivened by stories, quotations, and memories. She shares her curiosity for peat and her love of the literary uses of bogs and swamps but never veers far from explaining the alarming losses to our flora and fauna that are occurring today. Listeners learn about her childhood and ongoing fascination with wetlands, as well as proactive projects aimed at revivifying the damage that has been done through dredging and draining our swampland, marshes, and fens for the purpose of development. A.D.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2022 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
