Peter  Wohlleben - The Secret Bond Between Humankind and Nature


"Wohlleben's books extend our perception of the world." Der Tagesspiegel

Nature is our ally. In nature we feel safe and sound, like being at home – a feeling that has been around for thousands of years. Modern civilisation might have put a certain distance between it and us, but the strong tie between humankind and nature is still intact today, even if we are not always aware of it: our blood pressure goes back to normal if we are near trees; the colour green has a calming effect. Woods hone our senses, teaching us to smell, hear, feel and see, and it is here that we can find a whole apothecary of natural remedies that are immediately effective. The better we understand our environment, the more conscientiously we will treat this incredible treasure trove.

On the basis of scientific findings and his own decades-long observations, the internationally-known forest ranger opens our eyes for the hidden interplay of humankind and nature and once more amazes us, showing us as he does how to improve our eyesight, why we have a better sense of smell than dogs, where our fascination for fire comes from and a whole host of other phenomena.

"[I can] hardly imagine any book more worthwhile than this treasure trove of knowledge!"

Dennis Scheck, Magdeburger Volksstimme
