The engrossing story of how a nerdy tree climber and the only girl at the science fair grew into an inspiring innovator and international leader.

Prologue read by the author and Foreword read by Sylvia A. Earle. One of the world's first tree-top scientists, Meg Lowman is a pioneer in her field – she invented one of the first treetop walkways – she is a tireless advocate for the earth and has spent decades educating citizens across the globe. In a voice as infectious in its enthusiasm as in its practical optimism, The Arbornaut chronicles her irresistible story. From climbing solo hundreds of feet into Australia's rainforests to measuring tree growth in the north-eastern United States, from a bioblitz in Malaysia to conservation planning in India to collaborating with priests in Ethiopia's last forests – Lowman launches us into the life and work of a field scientist and ecologist. She also offers hope, specific plans, and recommendations for action; despite devastation across the world, we can still make an immediate and lasting impact against climate change. Come live among scientists and travel the world (even in a hot-air balloon)! The Arbornaut is the engrossing story of how a nerdy tree climber and the only girl at the science fair grew into an inspiring innovator and international leader.

'In The Arbornaut, Meg Lowman inspires readers with her amazing life story and reminds us that we can’t live without the natural world, especially trees.'
Tommy Hilfiger

'An eye-opening and enchanting book by one of our major scientist-explorers.'

'The Arbornaut captures the magic of that little-known world with its pioneering stories and clear, informative text. Readers everywhere will be fascinated and inspired to learn more about nature, and especially about how we need to conserve the world's forests.'
