by lbrown (Bailey, Colorado): An amazing book of natural rediscovery. I’m out in my yard awaiting spring so that I can follow the trails through my little aspen grove, smell the pines, and explore the soil at 9,000′ in the Colorado Rockies. I’m on my third read and still discovering things that David Attenborough tried to show me in The Private Lives of Plants almost 25 years ago. The Overstory reawakened my perception of the “real” world outside my own door.
