A pioneering scientist writes of the benefits of forest bathing and the fascinating ecological and pharmaceutical properties of trees—the inspiration for the documentary Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees. Renowned scientist Diana Beresford-Kroeger presents an unforgettable and highly original work of natural history with The Global Forest. She explores the fascinating and largely untapped ecological and pharmaceutical properties of trees: leaves that can comb the air of particulate pollution, fatty acids in the nuts of hickory and walnut trees that promote brain development, the compound in the water ash that helps prevent cancer, aerosols in pine trees that calm nerves. In precise, imaginative, and poetic prose, she describes the complexity and beauty of forests, as well as the environmental dangers they face. The author's indisputable passion for her subject matter will inspire listeners to look at trees, and at their own connection to the natural world, with newfound awe.
