The Arbornaut in Kirkus Reviews

On August 2, 2021 Meg Lowman’s Arbornaut: A Life Discovering the Eighth Continent in the Trees Above Us (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Aug. 10) was included in an article by Kirkus Reviews about 3 New Nonfiction Books for Nature Lovers by Eric Liebetrau.

Here is a sneak peak:

The Arbornaut is a treasure for tree huggers like me. “Canopy Meg” is an expert in treetop science, an area little understood by most readers, and her debut book chronicles her “obsession [with] foliage—not a gripping subject except in her hands.” As Lowman notes early in this delightful voyage, “Upward of half of all terrestrial creatures…live about one hundred feet or more above our heads.…Across more than sixty thousand species of trees, nearly every one hosts unique communities.” It’s a book to savor, perfect for anyone seeking to deepen their knowledge of trees, forest, and the remarkable interconnectedness of nature.”
