BOOKS YOU CAN’T PUT DOWN

Once in a while you pick up a book that transports you into another world!

I was on my way to visit my sister in California and delved into the airport bookshop for something to read on the flight!   I am a “tactile” reader in that the feel of a book in the hand as well as the cover conveys to me whether it’s my “cup of tea”.

Some books have hard edged covers and glossy sharp edge pages that become uncomfortable to hold after a while.  Then of course the subject matter, title and author tick other boxes. I didn’t have much browsing time before my flight so a quick wander up and down the Best Seller section and a couple of books jumped off the shelf at me!  

Author Peter Wohlleben spent over twenty years working for the forestry commission in Germany before leaving to put his ideas of ecology into practice.  He now runs an environmentally friendly woodland in Germany where he is working towards the return of primeval forests as well as caring for both wild and domestic animals.                            

The Hidden Life of Trees


Author Peter Wohlleben spent over twenty years working for the forestry commission in Germany before leaving to put his ideas of ecology into practice.  He now runs an environmentally friendly woodland in Germany where he is working towards the return of primeval forests as well as caring for both wild and domestic animals.  

Are trees social beings?  The forest is a social network with it’s own wood-wide web way of communicating.  Trees are like human families; tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling and even warn each other of imprending dangers. 
 
After you have read The Hidden Life of Trees, a walk in the forest will never be the same again

The Secret Network of Nature

Also by the same Author and continuing to delve into the natural world and the earth’s ecosystems that are so amazingly complex and sheds light on the symbiotic relationshiips between trees, plants and animals and the effect on the planet.    Did you know that trees can influence the rotation of the earth? Wolves can alter the course of a river? That Earthworms control wild boar population? Just some of the fascinating facts revealed in this book.
                              

Have you read either of these books? If so, I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!
