In this book the author, a renowned naturalist examines the critical role that trees and plants play in our world. Long before she began her work with chimpanzees, she had a passion for the natural world. Now she opens our eyes to the profound relationship we have with the world of plants, exploring our dependence on the plant kingdom as food, medicine, and our helpers in the task of healing the harm we have inflicted on the natural world.

First person. Chatty. Conversational. Reminiscing, personal. Just what I don't want in what purports to be a, what, objective, factual book. Never got past the first few pages. Sorry Jane. I'll give this one a pass and move on.

Seeds of Hope is as much about Goodall as it is about trees and plants. I really like when someone in their 80s writes about an interesting life. Combination of science, history, memories and future predictions.

Nothing new here, too much self promotional advertising material.

Excellent analysis and commentary on the need to honour and respect Nature and the tie in with global economy
