In THE SONGS OF TREES, award-winning nature writer David Haskell repeatedly visits a dozen trees around the world, exploring the trees' connections with webs of fungi, bacterial communities, cooperative and destructive animals, and other plants. In doing this he shows that every living being is not only sustained by biological connections, but is made from these relationships, and that holding a networked view of life enriches our understanding of biology, human nature, and ethics.

Each tree anecdote was engaging and unique, giving insight into the life of the individual tree, its connection with its plant and animal community, and larger human-ecological connections. The book is also beautifully written; I have never before read a description of tree-root fungus which sounded like poetry.
