Journal Entry 1 by wingSqNutZipswing from Silver Spring, Maryland USA on Wednesday, December 16, 2020
Memoir of a modern scientist/paleobiologist.

My BC forum post "Books being read while Social distancing during the Corona Virus pandemic". I completed this book in April 2020.

A fellow BC'er asked my impression of this book, she had it on her TBR pile. see my entry of April 13, 2020 below.
This is a short and easy book to read. However, it's not what I expected, but then I wasn't sure what I was expecting? I enjoy Jahren's writing about having favorite trees in her life, about tree seeds and their fight for survival from pre-historic times to now. And about how she decided to become a scientist. The botany/paleobiology stuff is interesting and on a good level to understand.
My take away from this book is plant a tree 💜 love a tree. 😊 And of course being a scientist isn't easy, it's a calling.
