This program includes an introduction read by the author. A "magnificent, empowering" (Bill McKibben) memoir about a woman spearheading a global initiative to heal the world’s rainforests and the communities who depend on them. When Kinari Webb first traveled to Indonesian Borneo at 21 to study orangutans, she was both awestruck by the beauty of her surroundings and heartbroken by the rainforest destruction she witnessed. As she got to know the local communities, she realized that their need to pay for expensive healthcare led directly to the rampant logging, which in turn imperiled their health and safety even further. Webb realized her true calling was at the intersection of medicine and conservation. After graduating with honors from the Yale School of Medicine, Webb returned to Borneo, listening to local communities about their solutions for how to both protect the rainforests and improve their lives. Founding two non-profits, Health in Harmony in the U.S. and ASRI in Indonesia, Webb and her local and international teams partnered with rainforest communities, building a clinic, developing regenerative economies, providing educational opportunities, and dramatically transforming the region. But just when everything was going right, Webb was stung by a deadly box jellyfish and would spend the next four years fighting for her life, a fight that would lead her to rethink everything. Was she ready to expand her work to a global scale and take climate change head on? Full of hope and optimism, Webb takes us on an exhilarating, galvanizing journey across the world, sharing her passion for the natural world and for humanity. In our current moment of crisis, Guardians of the Trees is an essential roadmap for moving forward and the inspiring story of one woman’s quest to heal the world. A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books "A wonderful book."--Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & U.N. Messenger of Peace

Editorial Reviews

Guardians of the Trees is a completely captivating story rich with lessons about the potential for personal and planetary transformation. Kinari Webb brings us along on her inspiring journey and we emerge infused with hard won and realistic hope for the entwined futures of humans, forests and the world we inhabit together. David Grinspoon, author of Earth in Human Hands
"This book is a wonder. An astonishing story, a page-turner, beautifully written, that will transport you deep into the rainforest and out again, transformed. Through her own remarkable journey, Kinari Webb has found a brilliant way to unite the healing of people and planet, to save both human lives and wild nature. So abundant is her passion and commitment that one can't help but emerge from her riveting story deeply affected, inspired, and flooded with hope. Jennifer Ackerman, New York Times bestselling author of The Genius of Birds and The Bird Way
"In my experience, only a few people have really earned the right to ask us to hope. As this magnificent volume makes clear, Kinari Webb is the exception. Her life is an inspiration, and her openness and vulnerability helps the rest of us make full empowering use of that remarkable story. Stay away from these pages unless you're prepared to be jolted into useful action! Bill McKibben, New York Times bestselling author of The End of Nature
