Just a few of the reviews!
“A riveting memoir.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
” … captures the magic of a little-known world … . Readers everywhere will be fascinated and inspired to learn more about nature, and especially about how we need to conserve the world’s forests.” —Jane Goodall
“… Meg Lowman inspires readers with her amazing life story, and reminds us that we can’t live without the natural world, especially trees.” —Tommy Hilfiger
“This is the most exciting and innovative way of introducing science that I have seen in many years. Everyone will want to read this book. Meg Lowman is starting a whole new movement exploring the treetops!” —E. O. Wilson, author of Half-Earth: Our Planet’s Fight for Life
“The Arbornaut is about a shy girl who loved to play outdoors and became a scientist who educated the world about the abundant life in the treetops. I loved it.” —Temple Grandin, author of Animals Make Us Human, Animals in Translation, and Thinking in Pictures
“Meg Lowman takes a passionate look at the ‘unexplored wonderland’ of trees in this vivid survey of life among forest canopies . . . Lowman shines in her ability to combine accessible science with exciting personal anecdotes that effectively convey the ‘thrill of aerial exploration’ and bolster her case that trees—and sustainable ecosystems—are worth studying, protecting, and preserving. Nature lovers will find much to consider.” —Publishers Weekly
“If, as is often said, we know more about the surface of the Moon than the depths of the oceans, we surely know even less about the ultimate biological frontier, the canopy of the temperate and tropical forests that literally shelter our lives. The Arbornaut is, true to its name, an account of intrepid exploration at the upper reaches of terrestrial life, where branches and foliage touch the sky and all creatures awake to the first morning rays of the sun.” —Wade Davis, author of Into the Silence, The Wayfinders, and One River
