Narrator David Stifel brings a rich, expressive voice to the task of narrating this entertaining audiobook about plants, their importance, and their roles in specific events and periods in history. Topics range from the popularity of liberty trees in France to--with a stop at banana peels--a clue to the kidnapping of aviator Charles Lindbergh's baby. Stifel performs with enthusiasm for his topic, which is a real plus for work of nonfiction like this. His presentation pulls the listener happily through the various vignettes. Those wanting something technical or heavier on the sciences might want to search elsewhere. But listeners who enjoy a well-told limited exploration should be happy with this discussion of the life-forms that comprise up to 85% of Earth's biomass.
