To Speak for the Trees: My Life's Journey from Ancient Celtic Wisdom to a Healing Vision of the Forest

by Diana Beresford-Kroeger Author

From world-renowned botanist and medical biochemist Diana Beresford-Kroeger comes this account of the hidden life of forests. Telling the story of her own life and the life of the forest in an interwoven narrative, Beresford-Kroeger explains her scientific discoveries even as she recounts her childhood in Ireland. Connecting her Celtic spirituality with her scientific work, To Speak for the Trees shows us how forests are not only the ecologically rich lungs of the planet, but are also a proven source of healing for the people that spend time in them. A powerful and timely book in an era of continued deforestation and disrespect for the natural world.
