Davidson and Simard
California native Ash Davidson attended the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and now lives in Flagstaff, Arizona. Davidson’s debut novel Damnation Spring is the story of Rich Gundersen, a logger obsessed with a redwood tree. He mortgages everything to buy a parcel of giant trees he aims to harvest, but his wife begins to suspect that herbicides the logging company uses may be behind a troubling pattern of birth defects and miscarriages in the community. Suzanne Simard, a professor of forest ecology at the University of British Columbia, is a pioneer on the frontier of plant communication and intelligence. In Finding the Mother Tree, she argues that only through collaboration can we face the global challenges of the environmental crisis, global warming, and the deforestation boom we are currently living in.
