Journal Entry 1 by sarradee from Mansfield, Texas USA on Saturday, January 1, 2022
Geobiologist Hope Jahren has spent her life studying trees, flowers, seeds, and soil. Lab Girl is her revelatory treatise on plant life--but it is also a celebration of the lifelong curiosity, humility, and passion that drive every scientist. In these pages, Hope takes us back to her Minnesota childhood, where she spent hours in unfettered play in her father's college laboratory. She tells us how she found a sanctuary in science, learning to perform lab work "with both the heart and the hands." She introduces us to Bill, her brilliant, eccentric lab manager. And she extends the mantle of scientist to each one of her readers, inviting us to join her in observing and protecting our environment. Warm, luminous, compulsively readable, Lab Girl vividly demonstrates the mountains that we can move when love and work come together.

Memoir of Hope Jahren who is a scientist that loves trees. Lots of tree facts and trivia. She also has a life-long relationship with her lab manager Bill who despite his idiosyncrasies is her chosen family. I love both of them!
