Peter Wohlleben, bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Trees, does not disappoint in this new book, a practical guide designed to help us open our eyes to the wonders of the forest. I was amazed at how even a walk to the park had me noticing new things about the trees I passed every day. There’s a lovely section on how to get children excited about a walk in the woods, fostering good stewards of the Earth from an early age. A perfect companion for wherever adventure takes you this summer.— Jax
Awaken your senses and learn how to be a forest detective--with Peter Wohlleben, New York Times-bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Trees.
"This book will fast-track you into the joys of spending time amongst the trees."--Tristan Gooley, author of The Lost Art of Reading Nature's Signs and How to Read Water
"You'll be changed after reading this fine and enchanting book."--Richard Louv, author of Our Wild Calling and Last Child in the Woods
When you walk in the woods, do you use all five senses to explore your surroundings? For most of us, the answer is no--but when we do, a walk in the woods can go from pleasant to immersive and restorative. Forest Walking teaches you how to get the most out of your next adventure by becoming a forest detective, decoding nature's signs and awakening to the ancient past and thrilling present of the ecosystem around you.
Throughout Forest Walking, the authors share experiences and observations from visiting forests across North America: from the rainforests and redwoods of the west coast to the towering white pines of the east, and down to the cypress swamps of the south and up to the boreal forests of the north.
With Forest Walking, German forester Peter Wohlleben teams up with his longtime editor, Jane Billinghurst, as the two write their first book together, and the result is nothing short of spectacular. Together, they will teach you how to listen to what the forest is saying, no matter where you live or which trees you plan to visit next.
