- The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben
- The Future We Choose by Christiana Figueres
- Waters of the World by Sarah Dry
In The Hidden Life of Trees, forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network. He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers.
In The Future We Choose, Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac—who led negotiations for the United Nations during the historic Paris Agreement of 2015—have written a cautionary but optimistic book about the world’s changing climate and the fate of humanity.
Waters of the World is a tour through 150 years of the history of a significant but underappreciated idea: that the Earth has a global climate system made up of interconnected parts, constantly changing on all scales of both time and space. A prerequisite for the discovery of global warming and climate change, this idea was forged by scientists studying water in its myriad forms. This is their story.
All books included are brand-new hardcovers from the publishers.
While we are all practicing social distancing due to COVID-19, individuals and families are spending a lot of time at home. We want to bring you great books to read during this time. We've applied our curating skills to creating 3 book sets on just about every topic, for just about every reader.
We are donating 10% from every order to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation. They are supporting local booksellers who have been economically impacted by COVID-19. As bookstores are a pillar of our local communities, we are trying to help out as best we can. Please consider buying multiple sets and donating the extra books to families who are home from work and school and in need.
