TWELVE TREES The Deep Roots of Our Future

by | Read by Kaleo Griffith

Contemporary Culture • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Books come from trees, but the trees themselves can tell us stories of their own if we know how to listen. Fittingly, I listened to part of this audiobook while sitting next to a campfire. Kaleo Griffith's narration is almost perfect for such a fireside chat. His straightforward yet conversational tone exactly matches the feel of the work. Author Daniel Lewis profiles a dozen trees, traveling the globe from Easter Island to the American West, from the Caribbean to Africa, offering up lessons in climate change, habitat preservation, and species survival. Visits to outdoor locales and indoor labs sound like inviting travelogs. Lewis is a science writer, not a scientist. So the book is written for lay listeners and adapts well to audio.
