The Human Age by Diane Ackerman

Ackerman’s books are composed in utterly unique ways. Readers expect intelligent language that lyrically pleases and never misses a beat. The Human Age might be this author’s best poetic science where humans are an indelible part of climate change and environmental loss. In this book, Ackerman delivers an unexpected gift: a bipolar marriage between humanity’s impact on the physical world and our flagrant and wild hope that creates an imaginative and innovative response.

The Power of Trees by Gretchen Daily & Charles Katz

With broad and subtle strokes that link scientific observation with poetic insight, The Power of Trees urgently reminds us of the connection between the environment and our human story, and how and why trees sustain our planet and our imagination. This book offers a graphical, musical score that instills a sense of stewardship. What better way for us to come to this than to bridge the gap between our intellect and our instincts?
