BK 39: (Sep 7, 2021) Finding the Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest

  Hi Everyone... Our Sep 7th discussion will be on the book Finding The Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest by Suzanne Simard (May 4, 2021).  With 306 reading pages it will be approximately 8 pages a day. (We have 5 weeks!) Check out the Bio, & Videos below:  " Suzanne Simard is a pioneer on the frontier of plant communication and intelligence; she's been compared to Rachel Carson, hailed as a scientist who conveys complex, technical ideas in a way that is dazzling and profound. Her work has influenced filmmakers (the Tree of Souls of James Cameron's  Avatar ) and her TED talks have been viewed by more than 10 million people worldwide. Now, in her first book, Simard brings us into her world, the intimate world of the trees, in which she brilliantly illuminates the fascinating and vital truths--that trees are not simply the source of timber or pulp, but are a complicated, interdependent circle of life; that forests are social, cooperative creatures connect
