November 29, 2021 8:15 AM EST

In Suzanne Simard’s first book, Finding the Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest, the world’s leading forest ecologist sheds light on the oft-overlooked inner lives of trees. While some may merely see trees as lumber or a natural resource, Simard makes the case that trees are communicative and communal creatures, not unlike humans. Intertwined with Simard’s own beguiling memoir about her life, the book is an ode to anyone who wants to be wild and free.
