About the Author

Peter Wohlleben spent over twenty years working for the forestry commission in Germany before leaving to put his ideas of ecology into practice. He now runs an environmentally friendly woodland, where he is working toward the return of primeval forests, as well as caring for both wild and domestic animals.

Wohlleben has been celebrated for his distinctive approach to writing about nature; he brings to life groundbreaking scientific research through his observations of nature and the animals he lives among.

Reviews

"A guidebook on how everything we need to know about the weather can be learned by paying close attention to our natural surroundings in general and our gardens in particular...You'll never look at your garden the same way again."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Wohlleben's insightful observations of nature, combined with his signature blend of science and imagination, invite us into deeper relationship with the ecology of our homes."
--David George Haskell, Pulitzer finalist and author of The Forest Unseen and The Songs of Trees

"For a society increasingly distanced from nature, Wohlleben renews our appreciation of the wonderful and varied ties between the living and nonliving worlds, including those that bind our favorite plants and animals with that most familiar of all
physical entities, the weather."
--Bill Streever, nationally bestselling author of Cold
