In one of the NYT top ten books of 2016, author Whitehead writes of slavery in a "narrative that seamlessly weaves the saga of America from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day..."

This fascinating book will intrigue readers who love a walk through the woods. Wohlleben, who worked for the German forestry commission for 20 years and now manages a beech forest in Germany, has gathered research from scientists around the world examining how trees communicate and interact with one another... Wohlleben anthropomorphizes his subject, using such terms as friendship and parenting, which serves to make the technical information relatable, and he backs up his ideas with information from scientists. He even tackles the question of whether trees are intelligent. [Publishers Weekly, July 25, 2016]
