Books that explore our connection with plants

Mycelium Running

In Mycelium Running, Paul Stamets hypothesizes that mushrooms are conscious beings. A recent study from Miami University backs this up- “The fungus in these experiements showed spatial recognition, memory and intelligence. It’s a conscious organism.”

Braiding Sweetgrass

Drawing on her life as an indigenous scientist, and as a woman, Robin Wall Kimmerer shows how other living beings—asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass—offer us gifts and lessons, even if we've forgotten how to hear their voices.

Finding the Mother Tree

A memoir from Dr. Suzanne Simard, the world's leading forest ecologist, who forever changed how we view trees, their connections to one another and to other living things in the forest.
