Description du produit

Revue de presse

 “Haskell leads the reader into a new genre of nature writing, located between science and poetry, in which the invisible appear, the small grow large, and the immense complex and beauty of life are more clearly revealed.”
(Edward O. Wilson, Harvard University)

 “In the style of Aldo Leopold, John Muir, and Thoreau, David Haskell has captured the beauty and intricacy of evolution in these pages. For those who are looking for inspiration to spend more time in the wild, this book is the perfect companion. Haskell’s vast knowledge of the forest and all its creatures is the perfect guide to exploring wilderness. The prose is a perfect match for the poetic tranquility found through the study of nature. A true naturalist’s manifesto.” 
(Greg Graffin, author of Anarchy Evolution)

 "David Haskell trains his eye on a single square meter of the Cumberland Plateau, and manages in the process to see the whole living planet as clearly as any writer in many years. Each chapter will teach you something new!"
(Bill McKibben, author Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet)

Présentation de l'éditeur

A biologist reveals the secret world hidden in a single square meter of old-growth forest--a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the Pen/E.O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award 

Look out for David Haskell's new book, The Songs of Tree: Stories From Nature's Great Connectors, coming in April of 2017

In this wholly original book, biologist David Haskell uses a one- square-meter patch of old-growth Tennessee forest as a window onto the entire natural world. Visiting it almost daily for one year to trace nature's path through the seasons, he brings the forest and its inhabitants to vivid life.

Each of this book's short chapters begins with a simple observation: a salamander scuttling across the leaf litter; the first blossom of spring wildflowers. From these, Haskell spins a brilliant web of biology and ecology, explaining the science that binds together the tiniest microbes and the largest mammals and describing the ecosystems that have cycled for thousands- sometimes millions-of years. Each visit to the forest presents a nature story in miniature as Haskell elegantly teases out the intricate relationships that order the creatures and plants that call it home.

Written with remarkable grace and empathy, The Forest Unseen is a grand tour of nature in all its profundity. Haskell is a perfect guide into the world that exists beneath our feet and beyond our backyards.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Become a Nature Lover 30 mars 2016
Par J. Solomon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Perhaps I'm a bit obsessive, but this is the first book I've read in a while that I looked forward to reading day after day. It is so rich in the natural sciences combined with Buddhist like awareness that I would only read a few pages per day, wanting to savor every paragraph. The style of writing is mostly conversational in nature which allowed me to really feel what, to some degree, Mr. Haskell felt when he was there. It is a book I never wanted to end - that's what it felt like to me.

I'm fortunate to have experienced similar environs in the Cumberland Plateau and southern Appalachian mountains. This book gave me a depth of understanding of the environmental symbiosis that I don't think I would have surmised otherwise. Mr. Haskell has certainly celebrated his UK literary roots combined with scientific expertise. The result is a book worth keeping in your library whether you are a nature lover or not. After reading this book, you may become a nature lover!

Post addendum: my cousin lives on the same mountain as Mr. Haskell and pointed out the cove that is the focal point of the book. I didn't have time to go there but I will soon before the wildflower season ends! I was also fortunate to have met Mr. Haskell when he lectured at the Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell, GA. He is quite a "regular guy", very down to earth, just like his writing!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This one is a classic 15 septembre 2012

Great book. I read, re-read and then bought the hard back copy to have one for the shelves. Will continue to re-read. Extremely well written and insightful. Each paragraph is charged with poetic information and deep understanding of the eco-system. I found the book absorbing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not a quick read, but worth it 13 avril 2017

I normally devour books. Some novels I finish in less than two days. I spent 2 months reading this book. I did this because it made me think. When the author talked about screws I didn't just move on, I thought about them and looked up some information on Wikipedia. I would read a chapter and think on it before starting the next chapter. A great read, but not one I recommend going through quickly.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A naturalist's heaven 28 mars 2017
Par Curtis H. Balls - Publié sur Amazon.com

There's so much to recommend about this book, the writing, the poetry, the science, the creatures of the forest below ground and above. A meditation on the life of the forest, the sky, the earth. You'll never think of the soil and the trees in the forest in quite the same way after reading this fantastic book.

I am giving this book to my most discerning, nature-loving friends. In thoughtful, short essays, the author teaches us to observe the interconnections of nature. He interweaves botany with many levels of poetic associations with other realms of knowledge such as history and philosophy. I love this book!
