Seed banks, guerrilla gardening, and city food gardens are just a few of the blossoms of hope in the current practice of botany, as observed by primatologist Jane Goodall. Goodall's voice introduces and concludes her audiobook, and narrator Edita Brychta delivers the bulk of her history and observations about the plant world. Brychta's tone suggests the blend of emotion and memory that characterizes Goodall's wistfulness for the adventurous past of botany and deep concern for the future of the planet. The book wraps up with the story of a tree that survived 9/11. As Goodall narrates that story, her voice is thinner than Brychta's but laced with an author's wisdom and experience, making for a most heartfelt moment.
