Animal, Vegetable, Miracle:  One Year of Seasonal Eating, by Barbara Kingsolver

I love this book (just as I love most of Barbara Kingsolver's books).  I love the commitment that she and her family made to a year of seasonal eating.  If you are interested in homesteading, growing your own food, cooking, and eating; she will inspire you just as she did to me.  (I've read this a few times!!) 

The Hidden Life of Trees:  What They Feel, How They Communicate, by Peter Wohlleben

I think anyone who loves and spends time in nature knows that trees communicate.  I loved learning about the sensitivity and human-like qualities trees and forests share with us.  This book illustrates the importance of why we need to protect them!

The Overstory, by Richard Powers

I really enjoyed this book even though I felt like I had to push myself through the story. It was worth it in the end.  The Overstory follows the lives of nine people and examines their connection with trees.  I found myself thinking of this book and its characters well after I was done reading.  (Bill Gates has it on his summer reading suggestions too.)
