"steeped in science, Goodall's feelings for the plants are spiritual-and her concern for their fate in the modern world is forthrightly political." -Michael Pollan, author

The world's foremost authority on chimpanzees shows us the secret world of plants with all their mysteries and potential for healing our bodies as well as Planet Earth.

In Seeds of Hope renowned scientist Jane Goodall shares her love and profound knowledge of the botanical world, offering us a greater understanding of the critical role that trees and plants play in our lives. With the same observational skills and engaging voice that deepened our personal feelings for the world of primates, she opens our eyes and hearts to our connection with the astonishing world of plants and trees - as food, as medicine for our bodies and psyches, as helpers in the urgent task of healing the harm we have inflicted on the natural world. Even when she is tackling the sinister forces imperiling the very nature of the plants we depend upon, her stories are visionary, uniquely enlightened, rooted in hope.

Dr. Jane Goodall is the world's foremost authority on chimpanzees. A globally renowned conservationist, she is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, and has received many of the most distinguished awards in science. In addition, she is the author of many books, including Hope For Animals and Their World, Reason for Hope, In the Shadow of Man, and The Chimpanzees of Gombe: Patterns of Behavior.
